CANCELLED Meet the Farmer: Check Our Chicks
April 29, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This event is sold out. Please join the wait list to be notified if any spaces open up.
Our incubator has been nurturing eggs for a few weeks now. Let’s see who’s hatched and who’s getting ready to break free from their shells. Farmer Lis will answer questions about caring for baby chicks while you help prepare their new home. You’ll see how to set up feeders and waterers, and prepare bedding in the temporary crate. Lend a hand with setting up fencing in our chicken coop to keep the new residents safe while they grow up to size. Kids will also get a chance to lend a hand with some animal chores and interact with our family of hens.
The Meet the Farmer series is a fun way for the whole family to learn about gardening, animal husbandry and sustainable agriculture. Our farmer, Lis Schneider, has been a year-round agriculturalist for over a decade. She works to encourage more young people to fall in love with the earth and outdoors by showing them all the fun and wonder to be found in their own backyards and gardens.
Park in the dirt lot and walk up to the children’s greenhouse (the last one on the right). Guests who have difficulty walking can still access our greenhouse and garden. Just contact us with any questions or special needs.
