Event

Landlocked 2
On October 21, 2018, we invite our sponsors and the general public to Decatur, GA to help us celebrate the southern oyster farming community and raise money to support the people that are working to make the dream of a strong southern oyster culture a reality. We do hope you'll be able to join us.

Much like last year, the primary beneficiary of Landlocked is the University of Georgia Marine Extension on Skidaway Island. The team behind the UGA Shellfish Research Lab has been working hard to produce oyster seed and teach interested people the art of farming oysters; the success of most successful oysters farming communities in the south can be traced back to their extension services. We want our friends at the UGA Shellfish Research Lab to have all the tools they need to help make Georgia a great place to grow, sell, and eat homegrown oysters.

Landlocked 2 will also allow Oyster South to begin our new SEED BANK program.  You can't farm without seed, and access to seed (baby oysters) is one of the most critical variables to any farms success. The best way for a farmer to ensure that he or she has the seed needed to operate is to grow it themselves. Growing seed ain't easy though. There's equipment, labor and a steep learning curve to deal with. And thats why Oyster South wants to help out.  Seed Bank funds will be turned into grants that give upstart hatcheries the financial help they need to make sure that the South's oyster farms will always have the seed necessary to grow beautiful oysters.

Oyster South is a 501(c)3 non profit founded in 2014 by members of the scientific, restaurant, and food-writing communities for the purpose of spotlighting the southern oyster. Oyster farming practices have given much ecological and economic value to other parts of the country, and now we are seeing those benefits having positive effects in coastal communities throughout the south.  Oyster South's goal is to help the farming industry succeed in these communities so that cultured oysters can be a relevant part of our southern diet and dining culture.
