Oyster Gardening

AHB is collaborating with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Town Point Marina to cultivate oyster spat that can be used to seed oyster bars in the bay and local rivers. Local families tend to the spat on a regular basis throughout the fall, winter, and spring, rinsing the sediments from traps and keeping them free of predators. If you would be interested in helping with AHB’s oyster gardening effort, please contact us at
