Urban Livestock Workshop at EarthLinks

Interested in raising chickens or goats in your backyard but don’t know where to start? Want to learn the basics of beekeeping or worm wrangling? Don’t miss this special day of Urban Livestock Workshops! We’ll kick things off with a family-oriented workshop on raising Goats and Chickens with locals Emily and Jonathan Power, covering all the basics and answering the question “What’s it like raising KIDS with KIDS?” Be ready to meet the Powers' two dwarf goats, and please leave your dogs at home.

After a light lunch at noon we’ll gather for a workshop on Beekeeping Basics and an Intro to Worm Farming in the EarthLinks garden.

10am-12pm: Raising Goats & Chickens ($5-20 suggested donation)
12pm: Lunch
1-2pm: Beekeeping and Worm Farming Basics ($5-20 suggested donation)

Emily Power is the creative mind behind A Denver Home Companion. This popular blog started as a means to document the Powers’ simple life in Denver, eventually growing into a platform to share how-tos with friends, inside tips on Denver to visitors, and celebrations with strangers. Emily’s other half, Jonathan Power, is the chef and co-owner (with Noah Price) of Upper Larimer’s beloved Crema Coffee House and new restaurant, The Populist.

EarthLinks, a nonprofit organization founded in 1996, provides a work program for people who are homeless and low-income to learn skills and create Earth-friendly products that sustain the people and the planet. Through organic gardening, craft production, day trips into nature, and earning a modest income, participants gain a closer relationship with nature and a caring community that provides support on the road to wholeness.
