Learn About Urban Homesteading with Farm AnimalsMarch 08, 2013
Interested in learning about urban homesteading with farm animals? Next week Garden Mentors® is participating in an exciting group seminar teaching the in’s and out’s of city gardening with country animals — including goats, honeybees, chickens and more!
Timber Press Free Range Chicken Gardens author Jessi Bloom, revered goatie guru gal Lacia Lynne Bailey, and Garden Mentors®‘ own honeybee hive host Robin Haglund will be teaming up to teach the professional garden designers of APLD and others – like you – about the in’s and out’s of creating and maintaining city gardens filled with these country animals.
Know what’s really cool? Each of us has lived and gardened and farmed with every one of the farm animals we’ll be discussing.
In our sessions, we will will address things you must know before you embark on keeping country animals, understanding these creatures’ behavior, designing your space, aesthetics, choosing plants, legal issues, cost considerations and much more. Plus, if you arrive early, you’ll have an opportunity to tour the farm at 21Acres where this event is scheduled. If you’re not a professional designer, don’t worry. We’re building our series for the benefit of anyone interested in keeping these creatures happy and healthy at home in your beloved residential gardens.
When: Thursday, March 14, 2013, 3pm-6pm (Arrive by 2:15pm for the optional farm tour)
Where: 21 Acres Farm, 13701 NE 171st Street, Woodinville, WA 98072
Cost: $50/person ($25/person for APLDWA members)
