We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Love growing your own food? Ever thought you might like to try adding chickens to your garden? Come join “The Chickeness," Khrysti Smyth, of Yardbirds Backyard Chickens and some of her feathered friends for a brief overview of basics like breeds, housing needs and design, health, laws and zoning, and pest management, and a discussion on the logistics of effectively managing a coop in your community garden. Course materials will be provided, and each attendee will receive a signed Certificate of Course Completion. Come find out whether keeping chickens might be a good addition to your garden, your kitchen, and your family's overall health and wellbeing. 

Kids are welcome to join and meet the hens!
