THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL MEETUP. JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW ABOUT IT BECAUSE THERE IS A CHICKEN COMPONENT.
The Dallas Green Festival is Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010, from 9 am to 2:30 pm at Texas Discovery Gardens. It features interactive green demos, children's eco-friendly crafts, a recycling relay, eco-art, market, and zip line. Special presentations and demos include a monarch butterfly tagging demo at 11 am and a display on how to create your own backyard chicken coop with Dan Probst.
Parking is free, and there will be food vendors (but no State Fair food yet).
More on Dan's chicken display (set up across from the children's garden):
There will be a chicken ark, about a dozen hens of various breeds (and weather providing some chicks), an egg display, a "Safe Backyard Egg"-handling information, and sheets with web resources on how to get started, emphasizing Dallas Backyard Poultry Meetup Group. Supervised children may hold baby chicks. (Hand sanitizer for use before & after handling chicks will be provided).
