BerthaBertha Booker

The Charleston Salt Farmer


What started as a field-expedient solution grew into the enterprise Bertha Booker oversees today on a Lowcountry sea island plantation. As she tells it, “One evening, I was kayaking at the Botany Bay wildlife preserve and had forgotten the salt to cook my dinner, so I boiled a little creek water and made some. It was delicious! Briny with a hint of sweetness.”  That ingenious solution sparked an idea and after almost two years of planning, regulation and perseverence, Botany Bay Sea Salt was born. Her salt is available at the Charleston Farmers Market.  Join us on Thursday, September 8, to hear more about the history of salt making in the Lowcountry. Botany Bay Sea Salt will be available for purchase at the program.
