Join us for this another Coalition of Austin Community Gardens panel discussion on alternate date Tuesday, September 27th, from 6:00-7:30pm . The topic is Raising Poultry at Community Gardens. This event replaces the regularly-scheduled September CACG meeting, which would land on the third Tuesday of the month, 9/20/16.
Chickens enhance food gardens enormously: they help with pest control, provide an abundant source of organic fertilizer, and delight the gardener with a steady supply of fresh eggs. Learn how to bring these benefits to your community garden from Michelle Hernandez, founder of the Funky Chicken Coop Tour and Phil Wiley, Sara Mills, Flo Rice, and Ila Falvey, all of whom manage chicken coops at community gardens.

A couple of notes: Seating is limited, so please bring your own chair. To protect the health of the Deep Eddy’s chickens, we’ll have a shoe-washing station set up. Please wear shoes with soles that you’re okay with scrubbing with a mild vinegar solution.
Thank you! Please help spread the word!
