Saving The Chesapeake Bay!
Buy local foods from farmers, farmers markets, minimized further emissions related transport. This will also help support local business.
Plant native grasses, trees that don’t require watering and fertilizing. This reduces chemicals that are huge pollutants and toxin runoff.
Plant a tree! Trees prevent erosion; soak up fertilizers and other chemicals that run into the Bay. Trees also add shade to your home which reduces energy costs. Energy costs have sky-rocketed within the last year.
Become and Oyster Gardener! To grow oysters, each workshop participant builds a set of four 'oyster cages' made from wire mesh that will hang from the dock. The gardener also receives several thousand seed oysters. Go to: Chesapeake Bay Foundation for more information and benefits the oyster beds provide to The Bay.
Grasses for The Masses: Restore the health of the Bay by volunteering to grow wild celery (Vallisneria americana), and underwater grass and then plant in selected rivers.
