CCHM Food for Thought: Urban Husbandry Workshop

Fall in love with urban husbandry!

Ubran Homesteading MediumJoin us on September 5, 2015 at 9:00am at Urban Snail CSA to get an introduction to the fascinating world of urban husbandry! Learn what you’ll need to get started with your own low-effort backyard flock of chicken, and, yes, even ducks. Life cycles, coop designs, breed selection, care and feeding for health and egg production, protection from predators, and ways of integrating your chickens or ducks into your garden are all discussed in this amazing workshop. You’ll meet CSA Rachel Feston’s flock, see her set-up and get hands on experience chicken wrangling. Plus she’ll point you to good locations in Clark County to purchase your chickens, ducks, feed, and resources. This class is in conjunction with our exhibit Food for Thought: Clark County’s Food History. Tickets are $5 ($3 for members). RSVP is required and space is limited.

Out of respect for our speaker, guests will receive a message with her address when they RSVP.
