New Oyster Gardener Workshop Schedule

New oyster gardeners are required to attend an Oyster Gardening Workshop before beginning their first year of gardening. Workshops are held in the early fall due to seasonal availability of hatchery-produced oyster seed. Please check back in August for our 2014 schedule. If you would like to be an oyster gardener, sign our volunteer registration form and someone will get back to you soon. If you're looking for more information about CBF's oyster gardening program, send an e-mail to

Workshop Information: Each workshop participant will build a set of four oyster cages from wire mesh, which will hang from their dock. The workshop will help new gardeners learn how to maintain their oyster garden throughout the coming year. Participants also receive several thousand native baby oysters to begin the program. There is a first-time workshop fee of $75.
