We at the Oyster Reef Recovery Initiative would like to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This has been an amazing year for us in terms of growth and community outreach and our success is directly linked to YOUR participation in our initiative. Our first year we signed up 16 growers for 33 cages. Now, in our third year, we have 84 growers signed up for 325 cages! When compared to the total number of households (1,700) and cages (7,500) in the state that are participating in growing oyster gardens, our modest organization represents 5% of the total number of households and almost 4% of the total number of cages! So, THANK YOU for your dedication to rehabilitating oysters in the Chesapeake Bay and we hope to be able to deliver cages to you for many more years to come!
