GROWN SEAFOOD! Explore the possibility of creating more
local seafood options directly from our coastal island waters! The
folks from Puget Sound Restoration Fund will be doing a presentation about an
exciting new project to start a Community Shellfish Garden on one of our local
Bainbridge Island beaches!!! This would represent an important new, local
source of protein in addition to added filtration of local waters. They
are planning a hands-on event to seed the shellfish garden with clams and

That means YOU can help participate to make this vision a reality.
