  • Instructor: Chesapeake Bay Foundation

Join the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) in a fun, hands-on, volunteer restoration project this winter! Participants 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 either the Potomac or James Rivers to bolster grass populations and help restore the Bay. Workshop participants receive a growing kit, seeds, instructions, and access to an online network of support. Sign up today; space in the program is limited! The program fee is $40. As an added benefit, Grasses for the Masses participants will receive a CBF membership for a year. To reserve your spot, please visit or contact Gabby Troutman at or call 804-780-1392.
