As the movement to eat locally grown food gains momentum, there has been an increase in the number of people who are gardening. Parallel to this is a growing interest in raising chickens. Some cities and towns don't allow backyard birds. Some do under conditional circumstances, while towns such as Arlington have put chicken-keeping up for vote. If you've ever considered raising a few laying hens of your own, this class is for you. We've invited suburban chickenista Phyllis Craine to provide basic information needed to start a small flock, the advantages of various breeds, insight into local chicken-keeping regulations, and the symbiotic relationships between garden and fowl when your birds come home to roost.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
