2nd Annual Urban Livestock Expo!

Angelic Organics Learning Center, Advocates for Urban Agriculture (AUA), and the Chicagoland Chicken Enthusiasts again present the Urban Livestock Expo!

The Expo offers the chance to network with new and experienced urban livestock keepers and learn about raising chickens/poultry, bees, goats, and rabbits in the city. The Expo's focus is raising animals responsibly in backyards, with representatives of many urban livestock groups, projects, and businesses on hand to tell visitors about opportunities for learning, visits, apprenticeships, sources of supplies, networking, and more.

Participants include new and experienced livestock keepers, experienced instructors, organized networks like the Chicagoland Chicken Enthusiasts, Windy City Bees, and the Goat Guardians Guild; organizations that support, train and advise on livestock topics; and businesses that provide supplies and services to people keeping livestock in the city.

ALL ADMISSIONS ARE FREE


We welcome tax-deductible donations in any amount to support this program.

    I was surprised to see the amount of interest for raising animals in the city, evidenced today. It was definitely worth the effort. I look forward to meeting all of you again.

    This expo is a great idea. It was helpful to talk with local experts about their experience with raising animals in urban settings. I look forward to attending next year.

    Once you build those cob bee hives and straw bale chicken coops, you'll want some livestock to come live in them. Come get inspired and consider the possibilities. While not directly a natural building event, anyone interested in using natural building techniques to create structures for livestock may find important information and inspiration here on the livestock end of things.
