NEWBURYPORT — Alison Darnell and Heather Ahearn of Atlantic Saltworks will be the speakers for the March meeting of the Greater Newburyport Edible Garden Group.

The program begins at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18 in the Newburyport Public Library Program Room.

Darnell and Ahearn are the founders of Atlantic Saltworks, a local independent business reviving North Atlantic salt- making traditions. They will share some of the history of saltworks in our area and describe how they make flake finishing salt. Atlantic Saltworks is based in Salem, with operations in Amesbury and Essex/Gloucester.
