Presenter: Matthew Gregg, Owner, Forty North Oyster Farms

Oyster hamlets were once littered along the mid-Atlantic coast. Hamlets turned to Villages, Villages turned to Towns, Towns turned to Cities; the mighty oyster that built it all. The botany of desire proved to be lethal. A victim of its own success, oyster stocks collapsed and with it, a way of life. Matthew will discuss digging up legacy and sharing it with a society poised for its return.
