You don’t need to own multiple acres outside of town in order to dabble in the heart of homesteading. You can explore “handmade and homegrown” right here in the suburbs. We invite you to join Prairie Crossing Learning Farm staff as we share with you some of our favorite homesteading topics during our suburban homesteading workshop series!
Do you like the idea of having fresh eggs available to you on a daily basis? Are you looking to add some animals to your yard that will also provide you with food, fertilizer, and pest control? Are you wondering what it takes to keep a few backyard chickens? If so, then this workshop is for you!
Backyard chickens are become increasingly popular in both urban and suburban areas! We will discuss the basics of backyard chicken keeping - including chicken breeds and behavior, where and how to obtain your hens (or chicks!), how to feed and house your backyard flock, local ordinances, and other things to consider before you get your own hens.
