Posted

ST. MICHAELS — This spring, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will be hosting a hybrid virtual and in-person workshop designed to teach you how to grow your own oysters.
Held via Zoom from 6–7 p.m. on March 18 and on CBMM’s St. Michaels campus from 10 a.m.–noon on March 20, this oyster gardening program will provide attendees with all the information needed to successfully grow oysters off their own dock. Participants may register for just the virtual program for $25 or for both sessions for $200, with a 20% discount offered to CBMM members on both options.

In the virtual class, participants will learn the practical aspects of oyster gardening and why oysters are so important for the Bay’s health. Participants are then invited to CBMM for the in-person workshop to construct their own oyster cages. All in-person workshop participants will leave with three cages, seed oysters, and the necessary components to start their own oyster garden.

CBMM members play a critical role in supporting CBMM’s rich legacy of educational programs, fascinating and ever-changing exhibitions, and maintenance of the largest collection of Chesapeake Bay watercraft in the world, and have access to exclusive discounts, perks, and programming.
