Upcoming Workshop: Sunday July 24th

Duncan Martin: Backyard Henhouses

Sunday July 24, 2011, 12:00–3:00pm

At the Bulk­head Urban Agri­cul­ture Lab (adja­cent to Habi­tat Island in the Olympic Vil­lage) googlemap

Please join Dun­can Mar­tin and his chick­ens from Dun­can’s Back­yard Hen­hous­es for an after­noon at the Bulk­head Lab. Dun­can will be lead­ing infor­mal demon­stra­tions and dis­cus­sions on the basics of prop­er care and keep­ing of small urban flocks of hens. This inter­ac­tive ses­sion will invite par­tic­i­pants to dis­cov­er best prac­tices for keep­ing small flocks of hens in their own backyards.

Dun­can Mar­tin has been liv­ing in Van­cou­ver since 2003, when he first moved here from Ver­mont to go to UBC.  After an Eng­lish degree and some years of teach­ing, Dun­can began draw­ing on oth­er inter­ests such as design, build­ing, agri­cul­ture, and art, to form the fledg­ling chick­en coop busi­ness that he now runs at www​.Dai​lyEg​gs​.com.  It is a work in progress that thrives on edu­cat­ing, con­nect­ing, and most impor­tant­ly, get­ting peo­ple start­ed with a flock of healthy, hap­py, and pro­duc­tive lay­ing hens. When he’s not build­ing coops, Dun­can is either bak­ing bread, mush­room hunt­ing, tin­ker­ing, or out and about with fam­i­ly and friends.
