In this workshop, educator Maria Ciavarella from My Green Garden will lead a presentation covering all you need to know to start keeping backyard chickens.

The session will cover:

  • what is needed to keep chooks
  • how to keep them safe from pests and foxes
  • which varieties are suitable for different purposes
  • and council requirements
  • Participants will take home extensive notes from the session.

The Resilient Communities Workshop Series aims to up-skill City of Whittlesea community members in the art of sustainable, climate-resilient living and community-building.

Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions to be entered into a prize drawing at the series' end. Every workshop participant will also receive a certificate of recognition for their participation and have the opportunity to share their learnings and creations at the celebration showcase in November 2023.
