CHICKAPALOOZA; Get Ready for Your Backyard Farm at Garden of Eve this Weekend, April 21 and 22

Garden of Eve is throwing its first Chickapalooza for “backyard homesteaders.” Come to learn everything you need to know to raise chickens yourself. For $10 take a class on how to raise and brood chickens and pasture poultry for eggs and meat, and then take home one ready-to-lay chicken!

Also at the farm this weekend are tutorials on working with bees, a sheep-shearing demonstration, working with wool, organic home gardening, composting, container gardening and growing edible flowers.

Cooking demonstrations include making fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, cooking with kale and for kids.

A lunch buffet will be served from noon to 3 p.m. And there will be pony rides and live music.
