Learn the fine art of oyster gardening! CBF is expanding our oyster gardening program in the harbor and looking for lots of new gardeners! Oyster gardeners care for two cages of oysters each over the winter and then join CBF to "plant" them on the Fort Carroll reef in the spring. This unusual hobby is fun, educational and helps to clean the harbor waters.
The September workshop will be held at the Downtown Sailing Center, 1425 Key Highway.
The October workshop will be at Lighthouse Point Marina, 2780 Lighthouse Point E, just east of the Safeway on Boston St. in Canton.
You do not have to live on the water or have access to a dock—the workshop sites will also serve as the over-wintering gardening sites.
A fee of $50 per gardener includes two cages with oysters, materials, a t-shirt and hat, gloves, and a cleaning brush.
Space is limited, so we will be accepting gardeners on a first-come, first-served basis with a waiting list.
(Registration deadline for September event: September 21; for October event: October 6)
