The Great South Bay Oyster Gardening Program is designed to provide everyday people with the opportunity to learn and participate in shellfish aquaculture practices within the community.
Oyster gardening is the non-commercial production of cultured oysters for resource enhancement, improvement of water quality, and/or consumption. Participants will learn in a classroom setting, and then put that knowledge to work by being able to garden the world famous Blue Point Oyster.
Located on the shoreline of The Great South Bay in East Islip, NY; our private yet accessible intertidal oyster garden is the perfect place to start culturing your own oysters.
