What Do Oyster Gardeners Do?
Oyster gardening allows volunteers to play an active role in an oyster restoration project. The gardeners will be responsible for removing predators from the oyster gardens and clearing the gardens of mud and algae. The gardens need to be cleared of mud and algae to ensure water can flow through the gardens bringing the oysters oxygen and food. These tasks take roughly 30-45 minutes and should be done every 7-10 days.
Oyster gardeners are also encouraged to take measurements monthly throughout the season. These measurements can be reported via the online form found here. If you are interested in measuring, please let us know and we will provide you with calipers.
