Sustainable growth for backyard chicken flocks
The Times


Backyard chickens can be a great source of eggs and fun for your family or an opportunity for some extra income. Join the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and Purdue Extension Hamilton County on Saturday, April 29th to learn about Sustainable Growth for Backyard Chicken Flocks.

"The Sustainability Series brings info relevant to residential property owners on how they can create a more sustainable lifestyle and property in our suburban environment" said Hamilton County SWCD Urban Conservationist Claire Lane. "Backyard chickens can be a food supply or a business and this workshop will provide valuable info and inspiration on improving your backyard flock whether you are just getting started or expanding to start selling eggs."

Education sessions include "A Real Life Perspective on Managing a Backyard Flock- 5 Years in the Making" with Jon Whitesel of Circle City Farm, "Know Your Produce: Marketing for Profit" with Liz Brownlee of Nightfall Farm, and "Resources for Backyard Growers: Connecting Producers to Experts & Information" with Jeffrey Deutschman and Chelsie Lawyer of the Indiana State Poultry Association. Additionally, SWCD and Purdue Extension staff will share with attendees the many local resources available to them to start these and other sustainability efforts.

The Sustainability Workshop will take place Saturday April 29th at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall in Noblesville. The workshop costs $15 per person and will run from 8:30am - 12:00pm. Registration can be completed at www.hamiltonswcd.org.

Questions regarding the event can be directed to Claire Lane at Claire.lane@hamiltoncounty.in.gov or 317-773-2181 or Diane Turner, Purdue Extension, atturnderda@purdue.edu or 317-776-0854.
