Oyster Gardening

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va – More than 1,000 baby oysters, or spat, are in each bag handed out to local teachers in Hampton Roads who attended Laurie Carroll Sorabella’s oyster gardeing class. The spat will then be put into large mesh bags and placed in oyster floats. Sorabella is the director of Oyster Reef Keepers of Virginia, Inc. Employees from Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, partnered with Jessica Grell’s fourth grade class from Seatack Elementary School in Virginia Beach to create a sanctuary oyster reef along the shores of Norfolk District’s property.
