Reminder: Urban Chicken Keeping Workshop TONIGHT!

October 3, 2012

$25 – $30

It’s not too late to RSVP for the Urban Chicken Keeping Workshop tonight, co-hosted by NOFA Mass and Groundwork Somerville! You can RSVP online here.

Urban Chicken Keeping Workshop

You don’t have to be a farmer to keep chickens. Terry Golson has more than sixteen years of experience keeping a small flock of laying hens in her backyard that supply eggs for her family’s table. In this slideshow and lecture, Terry will share everything you need to know to get started with your own chickens. She’ll cover selecting the right breeds, housing, feed, and how to keep the hens healthy. Terry will talk about chicken behavior, predators, and daily chores. She’ll show you how she composts the manure and makes use of it in her garden. Terry speaks and writes frequently on this topic. You can find out more about her and her hens at www.HenCam.com.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact Drew Love at by email at drew@nofamass.org.
