Community Shellfish Gardening Registration is Here!!!

Dear Community Shellfish Gardening Fans,

Registration for the Oyster Bay/Cold Spring Harbor Community Shellfish Gardening Program is now live at:

Please register your garden ($175) in either Laurel Hollow (Laurel Hollow, Oyster Bay Cove and Eagle Dock), Bayville (Bayville, Centre Island and Mill Neck) or your own private dock or club in open waters (see NYS DEC Shellfish Mapper or ask me). Not sure where? E-mail First timers don’t be intimidated – we will have a training session and fellow gardeners and I are always willing to help!!!

There are many ways to participate:

Register as an individual, for your family or with neighbors and friends to share a cage

Sponsor a cage in someone’s name for students, scouts and volunteers to manage is a great way to help the bay (and avoid the work).

Volunteer – we always welcome anyone willing to help the cause!

Donate – tax deductible contributions of any size go directly to supporting the Community Shellfish Gardening.

Let’s make something great out of this crazy year – 100 gardeners and 100,000 oysters!!!!

Please share this e-mail and the attached shellfish gardening fact sheet or link to our web site to others.

Questions? Ideas? Concerns? Let me know.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and support. You are awesome!!!!!

Rob Crafa, Coordinator
