Jo Lane ‘The Kelp Lady’ from Sea Health Products wild harvests and processes kelp products on the South Coast of NSW. With experience as a seal trainer and diver, she carries on the legacy of the ‘Original Kelp Lady’ Betty Long and her innovative use of kelp for food products.

Jo has recently returned from travelling overseas with the Yulgilbar Churchill Fellowship to research kelp farming systems and bring that information back to the east coast. She is working towards establishing a kelp farm and hopes to be instrumental in developing this new innovative, sustainable industry in Australia.
