Urban Livestock Expo

February 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Ever considered how to keep bees, goats, chickens, ducks or quails in your backyard? Join AUA’s winter gathering for free, fun workshops on daily care, ideal breeds, how to troubleshoot common problems, and professionals’ tips for being a good neighbor with animals in the city!

All levels of expertise and interest welcome, from the experienced to the curious! Mark your calendar for Saturday, Feb. 18th at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences, 3857 W. 111th St. Chicago, from 10:00AM to 1:00PM. In addition to these great workshops, students will guide us on behind-the-scenes tours of their livestock barn and aquaponics center!

Area urban livestock groups and businesses will also staff resource tables with information on further learning opportunities, support networks, sources of supplies and equipment, and more.

To power all that learning, we’ll have tasty local food and beverage vendors with us as well! Don’t miss this fun opportunity to expand your knowledge, connect with other practitioners, and get close to a goat. Spread the word to your networks with our Facebook event page, send questions to info@auachicago.org, and see you then!
