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.
CHICK-A-PA-LOOZA 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22. At Garden of Eve Organic Farm & Market, 4558 Sound Ave, Riverhead NY 11901
