CHICKEN WORKSHOP

Saturday July 6th at 11am

Backyard chickens – It’s easy when you know how!

A 2 hour hands on, common sense workshop on how to ensure your chickens give you and your family an excellent source of local food and lots of pleasure. Learn how to avoid common pitfalls of starting a back-yard flock.

We have raised chickens on our small peninsula farm for over 30 years, experimenting with many different breeds, learning through experience what works and what doesn’t. This workshop will help you bring food production to a personal level…and provide you with information even Google doesn’t carry.

Reserve your place. Limit 12 participants per workshop
