Living Prosperously through Seaweed
Albert Gilon has trained hundreds of seaweed cultivators in East Nusa Tenggara and other provinces.
Cultivating seaweed is not easy. Cultivators must have special skills and knowledge. Albert Gilon, 60, has the two and does not hesitate to share them with others. So far, he has trained hundreds of seaweed cultivators in East Nusa Tenggara and other provinces.
Unfortunately, the training for seaweed cultivation (Eucheuma cottonii) has been forced to stop during the Covid-19 pandemic to avoid crowds. However, the man who is popularly called Gilon is still diligent in contacting leaders of the seaweed cultivating groups that are scattered in a number of areas.
