Growing Oysters for Personal Consumption
Participants join this two year program and grow oysters for non-commercial use (their own consumption) with support from professional aquaculturists and industry experts. Oyster Gardening is an educational program that uses aquaculture to teach students about water quality, estuarine ecology, resource use and management, shellfish biology and husbandry. There are six weeks of classes and then regular oyster tending sessions throughout the growing season (April through November).
