An oyster garden requires weekly maintenance, but the more consistent you are, the easier it is to care for your garden and the better your oysters will grow. This publication is aimed at oyster gardening volunteers and explains how to establish the 100 adult oysters and spat (juvenile oysters) into a garden and the routine care required to grow the new oysters.
