About the workshop:
Backyard flocks: Urban Chicken Keeping
In this workshop, you will learn everything you need to know to start raising a small flock of urban chickens in your own backyard. Besides learning about the benefits of backyard chickens, this introductory workshop will cover the important considerations regarding caring for hens in limited spaces, including breed selection, coop design, caring and feeding for health and egg production and how to keep your curious neighbors happy. You'll come away from the workshop with all the information you need to get started with your own low-effort backyard flock.
Free freshly brewed Ritual coffee will be provided at this workshop with generous support from Ritual Coffee Roasters.
