After seven successful years of chicken empowerment, Wasatch Community Gardens’ annual Chicken Week is growing up!
Say hello to the very first Urban Garden and Farm Week, which runs June 16th through June 22nd.
Whether you are a budding gardener, a seasoned grower, a backyard poultry keeper, or an urban dweller with herbs in a window, the Urban Garden and Farm Week has an event for you.
Urban Garden and Farm Week, which uses the motto “make, raise, grow,” will highlight unique, innovative and traditional growing techniques and lifestyles. You will have the opportunity to see and discuss urban homesteads, rainwater catchment, intensive gardening techniques, backyard livestock, bee keeping, season extending, unique garden spaces, permaculture and more.
A few of the events you can look forward to (we certainly are!)
- Urban Chicken Keeping – a workshop that helps you understand how to be a successful chicken keeper in the city.
- Edible City screening at Brewvies Cinema Pub – followed by a panel discussion with local food leaders.
- Brand NEW! Urban Garden and Farm Tour – an educational and inspirational tour featuring chickens, sustainable lifestyles, small space gardening, rainwater catchment and more!
