Learn how to grow oysters as part of an established East End oyster restoration initiative administered by Cornell Cooperative Extension. For a fee of $200, interested participants in the Town of Southampton are given lessons along with 1,000 baby oysters and two floating cages for their oysters to grow and be protected in. Once fully grown, all the oysters can either be put back into the bay or half can be kept for consumption. Workshops will include life history, culture techniques, culinary tips, maintenance of gardens and all of the things you always wanted to know about shellfish but were afraid to ask. You must register for this each year. PARTICIPANTS MUST BE PREPARED TO GET WET & SOMEWHAT FOULED.

For 2021, Tiana growers are limited to 60. Join directly through the Southampton Town Parks & Recreation Department.
