Oyster Gardening A Success At PS 47

Oyster Gardening A Success At PS 47


	As Mrs. Williams carried the big white bucket into the classroom, the new Seventh Grad­ers at PS47 beam­ed with anticipation. They wondered how their Oyster Garden fair­ed after the long summer mon­ths. The students were pleased to find that the oysters were thriving and grew on an average of 6 centimeters since the program began in February. There was an array of different organisms including shrimp, crabs, and barnacles that found a home amongst the oysters. Soon they will be ready for release into the bay. This program has been quite a success. The class will be checking the oysters on a monthly basis.
