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

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.
