Learn how to care for backyard chickens at three workshops this Sunday.
As City staff finalize their recommendation for the backyard chickens bylaw, which would allow Vancouver residents to keep egg-layers on their property, Village Vancouver and Fork in the Road are hosting three neighbourhood Backyard Chickens 101 learning parties with Heather Havens this Sunday, September 20, 2009.
The workshops will go over proper care and infrastructure requirements for keeping hens in the city. This is a great opportunity to meet other like-minded neighbours who share an interest in urban agriculture and want to support each other.
Heather Havens is an agricultural and animal scientist. In January 2008, she legally imported her hens to Canada and has since worked with others to help the Vancouver City Council change the backyard chicken bylaw.
Main St/Little Mountain, near 23rd and Columbia – 10–12 p.m. (potluck to 1 p.m.)
The Drive/Grandview–Woodland, near Commercial and Charles – 1:30–3:30 p.m.
Arbutus/MacKenzie Heights, near 25th and MacDonald – 4–6 p.m.
Cost is by donation. To register, email Ross Moster. Everyone is welcome, but registration is limited to 15–20 people per workshop.
Can’t make it on the 20th? Village Vancouver is running a series of chicken workshops in different neighbourhoods around town, so just drop Ross an email to find out when and where the next ones are.
