I want to be sure that you are aware of an upcoming Greater Denver Urban Homesteaders event to meet the Heirloom Gardens urban chickens and goats (including 2 baby goats). There will also be a seedling sale, so if you got busy over the winter and didn?t get your seeds started, don?t fret! This is your chance to purchase some beautiful varieties of gorgeous heirloom veggies. Event details follow.
From 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, May 8, Heirloom Gardens (a Neighborhood Supported Agriculture operation in Berkeley) will be holding an "open house," so everyone can come by and meet the chickens and dwarf goats (including two baby goats!). Come visit their barnyard, and get the opportunity to see how chickens and goats can live in an urban setting.
Denver's City Council will vote sometime soon on lifting restrictions on Food-Producing Animals in the city. Part of raising awareness about this issue is showing just how do-able urban chickens and goats can be, so stop by and spend a little time with the animals! [Note: This activity is not a formal class in urban chicken and goat keeping; just an opportunity to visit the animals.]
They will also be offering organic, heirloom seedlings for sale -- just in time to plant in your garden, or give as a Mother's Day gift! Heirloom varieties of tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, squash and cucumbers will be available.
