  • Vertical Oyster Garden

    On April 8, 2024, we installed of our very own Vertical Oyster Garden (VOG) at Mar Vista. Thanks to our incredible partner, the Gulf Shellfish Institute, and their dedicated crew for building and hanging over 50 lines under our dock! These VOGs are not just about oysters; they’re about creating new habitats for filter feeding bivalves, contributing to cleaner water one dock at a time! Want to join the movement? Swing by our adoption center and set up your own garden for FREE!
    Did you know? Many shorelines in the greater Sarasota Bay area are “armored,” reducing habitat for marine critters. But with VOGs, we’re changing that narrative, creating thriving ecosystems and engaging our community in science! Let’s protect our shores and promote biodiversity!
