Happy Healthy Chickens
April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Are you looking forward to starting your own backyard flock of chickens? Join us for another event from our Resilient Garden Series on Tuesday, April 13th, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. Adding poultry to your backyard, or farm can build your soil nutrients, control pest populations and even clear land while supplying you with healthy food. Our instructor, Kirby Lecy will present all the things she wished she had known about natural chicken keeping before adding them to their small farm. We will cover all the basics of keeping poultry for eggs, including:
- A tour of their coop and discussion about shelters
- How to feed your chickens and convert food waste into nutritious food
- Keeping your flock healthy
- Managing manure
- Ways to use chickens to fertilize your landscape and manage insect pests
Kirby Lecy is a small farmer & chicken wrangler with 15+ years of working on food access, farming advocacy, and rural challenges.

This online series is offered as a service to our community to respond to the current needs for home-based food production skills. As we have postponed or cancelled many of our on-farm and in-person education events, we are using our available time as an organization to put together this series.
