7:30 pm

After the long winter, it’s time to celebrate spring. Please join us on Wednesday, April 4th for our Annual Spring Potluck dinner.

For those of you that have never been to an AGC potluck, they are events not to be missed and are seasonal highlights if for no other reason than for the pure social fun of it. Bring a dish (whether it be a starter, side, entrée, or dessert) to share with your fellow members and guests. We’ll have a brief business discussion during dinner, and the rest of the time will be devoted to great food and wonderful company. Plates, utensils, napkins, cups and drinks will be provided. We hope to see everyone there for this excellent occasion!

Date: Wednesday, April 4th
Time: 7:30pm
Where: Sugar House Park Garden Center, 1602 East 2100 South

Another great lecture! Thanks to Dean and Jim for answering the many questions we had. The keeping of chickens is a fairly expansive topic, and trying to cover everything from county/city ordinances to health, food and species selection is simply impossible in just a few hours. We hope the lecture and Q&A provided some answers and a starting point to conduct additional research. While we weren’t able to get to coop design, there’s a wealth of information to be found on the interwebs. Also, please plan on attending the Wasatch Community Gardens’ Tour de Coops towards the end of June to see, first-hand, about coop design and urban chicken farming. Below you will find a link to a PDF file of the meeting handout given on March 7th as well as links to the websites found in that handout.
