There is only one month left in the 2017 Mississippi oyster gardening season. That means it’s time to look ahead to oyster pick-ups and the 2018 oyster gardening season. All gardeners should be on the lookout for emails regarding oyster pick-ups, which should take place the last week in November.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s already time to start thinking about next season. We are currently in the midst of a major recruiting push, and would love any ideas for potential speaking venues. Our program coordinator gave an informational talk this past weekend at the Pascagoula River Audubon Center, and any similar opportunities would be welcome. As always, please spread the message of oyster gardening to your friends and neighbors, we are always looking for more gardeners and to expand the knowledge of the program!
