Always wanted to raise backyard chickens? Austin Resource Recovery has just released the dates for loads of free backyard chicken keeping classes coming up in 2018.
At the class, you’ll learn how chickens can serve as an excellent food source (with their eggs), as well as a waste reducer. The fact of the matter is, chicken keeping and composting methods go hand-in-hand. Chickens keep food waste out of the landfill and they create healthy soil, all at the same time.
Upcoming classes include:
- Wednesday, January 17th from 6pm to 7pm at Twin Oaks Library
- Saturday, February 3rd from 12:30pm to 1:30pm at Recycled Reads
- Sunday, March 4th from 12:30pm to 1:30pmat HOPE Farmers Market
A full list of upcoming classes is available online. Just remember to RSVP quickly, because the classes fill up fast.
Plus, most Austin residents who complete the class will be eligible for a $75 rebate toward a backyard chicken coop. You can learn more about the rebate program here>>
