sweater2Winter is coming: Cold Climate Backyard Chickens

Tuesday, September 8th, 6-7:30pm $10
Worried about the winter so you cull your flock in the fall? New to chickens and wondering how to handle Minnesota in January? Had chickens for a few years and ready to close the loop on your backyard flock? This is NOT an introduction to chicken keeping class, it is assumed that attendees have had chickens for at least one season and want to keep a flock year round.  We'll cover housing feeding water and other things to get you though the cold.  Rob Czernik of Powderhorn Feed Co. will present and facilitate a discussion. Leave confident you can keep chickens year round, even in Minnesota! To register click here.

Permaculture is a process of designing long-living, resilient human habitats and communities modeled after and interwoven with native ecosystems.  Through this workshop, we will survey systems of soil and water management, renewable energy, food and gardening, green building, and community development and focus on the values and design principles that bring them all together.
