SORRY! NO SEATS LEFT for Harvesting Salt Around Virginia's Barrier Islands

Speakers: David and Anna Lee
Cost: FREE

After years of dreaming of a coastal lifestyle and launching a barrier islands focused sea salt business, Anna and David Lee pulled the plug on their big city life and moved to the Eastern Shore.  They’ve combined David’s career as a boat captain with Anna’s background as a specialty foods executive to create Barrier Islands Salt Co., Virginia’s first coastal saltworks since the 1700s!

They’ve spent three years perfecting their sea salt, and the result is a bright white, flake sea salt with a clean oceanic flavor and a sweet finish.  Nature does the heaviest lifting for them, giving them the purest water on the east coast to work with.  Come enjoy a morning of learning about the process and history of salt making on the Eastern Shore.
