On the wings of Oakhurst Community Garden Project’s wildly popular “Chicks in the City” classes comes a full day of urban poultry-keeping. On February 25 the Chicks in the City Symposium offers attendees a full plate of essentials on backyard chickens. Taught by local experts, the seven sessions highlight how-tos from bees and chickens to community co-ops.
With urban farming on the rise and concerns about how food is made increase, this timely full day of workshops will engage and enlighten both the committed “locavore” and curious alike. The Chicks in the City Symposium equips guests with all the resources needed to start an urban flock.
In an eggshell, the symposium runs from 8:30 am until 4 pm on Saturday, February 25 and will be held at Oakhurst Church, 630 East Lake Drive in Decatur. The cost is $65, OCG members pay just $50. Pre-registration is required. Register at www.oakhurstgarden.org. For more information or to volunteer contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
