Backyard Chickens 101 workshop

Join Jenny Tait Murnane, local chicken lover who will step us through the magical world of Chickens in an Urban Garden at the Green Space hall on Sunday 19 June 2pm - 3.30pm.

Jenny is very passionate about chickens, and is an advocate of them being an integral feature of gardening, as well as being fun and entertaining creatures which deliver so much more than eggs to our lives.

Jenny is equally passionate about growing and preserving food sustainably, plus creating diversity in nature, not just with soil and plants, but the creatures that inhabit it.
