Science Café Series — Urban Agriculture
Join us to learn about the art of raising chickens. Owning backyard chickens could easily be in your future! In this Café, you will learn the best ways to easily manage the feeding, watering, cleanup, egg collection and other chicken issues in a way that will allow you to incorporate chickens into your urban lifestyle … even allowing for safely taking two-week vacations (without a chicken-sitter).
