Chesapeake Bay Foundation Grasses for the Masses Workshop

Sunday, February, 10, 2013

Terra Pascarosa Duff is the Regional Volunteer Coordinator for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.  This was Terra’s fifth annual Grasses for the Masses workshop at the Virginia Aquarium.  With the help of Marnie Pascarosa, Ben Duff, and Julia Allard the workshop continues to be a huge success.  We had over 40 participants at the workshop this year!

Participants in the program grow wild celery (Vallisneria americana), a type of underwater grass, in a simple grow-out system in their homes for 10-12 weeks. After 10-12 weeks of grow-out, participants will gather to plant their grasses in select local rivers to bolster grass populations and help restore the Bay.
