Have you ever thought about raising your own chickens? Whether you're interested in getting fresh organic eggs for breakfast or meat for dinner, Countryside Conservancy can answer all your questions about raising a small flock of chickens right in your own backyard on Tuesday, April 9th at Stone Cottage Farm and Garden in Cuyahoga Falls. They claim it's easier than you'd think!
In addition to helping you with all your questions and concerns about backyard chickens, there will also be give-aways and drawings to make the class fun. Click here to register for the class or to check out some of CC's other fun classes, including how to start your own vegetable garden and how to preserve those vegetables you won't be able to consume.
Last time we wrote about Countryside Conservancy, we were at their monthly Food Swap. This month, they have changed the location from downtown to The Banyan Tree in Bath to mix it up a bit. Food swaps take place the third Tuesday of every month. The next one will be on Tuesday, April 16th. If you're curious about swapping, you can read more about it and register by clicking here. Also, click here to check out our post about how to be prepared as a first time swapper.
Akron Empire loves Countryside Conservancy and is looking forward to more great classes and events hosted by them to help Ohioans support the farming community!
