Learn everything you need to raise happy hens: the coop, nesting boxes, feed and water. Class includes caring for your hens and chicks, easy chicken coop care, growing a ‘chicken’ garden for your hens, and all about eggs. See how easy it is to raise chickens and how great a role they play in creating a healthy organic garden. We give them food scraps and garden greens - they give us eggs and fertilizer. *Meet at Common Ground then carpool to Jody’s Garden and Hen House. Return to Common Ground by 1:30 pm. Jody has raised backyard chickens in her organic vegetable and herb gardens for many years and shares her expertise and knowledge in a practical way.
