Several friends have forwarded a link to this video of a vision for oysters in a challenged area of New York Harbor. In some ways this reminds me of Fort Point Channel.

Kate Orff TED Video.

It is delightful seeing a grand vision for master oyster restoration to an urban harbor. She lays out the vision well. Can Boston get equally inspired? Can we make that a reality? Only with your help.


  1. I linked to Kate Orff's video on my blog, and a commenter told me about your project. This is fascinating, and good luck!

  2. Your event at Harpoon was a lot of fun. Well done! I met some nice people and enjoyed a night out. I look forward to attending more MOP events!
