    Would like to learn more about raising chickens. Our family has talked about it quite a bit since last fall and done a lot of reading on the subject. Would like to see an "Urban" chicken coop in person.

    Really enjoyed the class today. I learned quite a bit. I wish the class had been more in depth about the actual gardening aspect. I see there is a hands-on class coming up, so maybe I can get more info there!

      I use a lot of medicinal herbs. I usually use them in the form of tinctures, poultices, teas, or supplements. I just need to start raising my own sources!

    It was mentioned about an executive order that seized control over food supplies, farm machines, and such. It was put in effect March 16, 2012. Here is the link:

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
