Central Peninsula Garden Club monthly program
Name: Central Peninsula Garden Club monthly program
Date: January 9, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM AKST
Central Peninsula Garden Club January Program: Chicken University, presented by Dr. Stephen Brown. Chicken manure is one of the best organic garden fertilizers. But, before you can have chicken manure you’ve got to have chickens! Come learn the fundamentals of raising chickens in Alaska on and off the grid, with many of funny stories along the way. Topics include breed selection, coop design, nutrition, sexing, disease management and even chicken psychology. Steve began his Cooperative Extension Service career in 1992 in Upstate New York for Cornell University. He is currently the Mat-Su/Copper River District Agent and also serves Anchorage. The last time Dr. Brown gave his Chicken University presentation for the Garden Club was in 2010, and people still talk about what a great program it was. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about what some consider to be the gardener’s best friend. Immediately preceding the Brown’s presentation, the brief annual business meeting of the Central Peninsula Garden Club will begin at 7:00 p.m. for the purpose of electing Directors to the CPGC board. Free and open to the public. Refreshments and sometimes door prizes. Membership and general club information is available at www.cenpengardenclub.org, on facebook, or contact Renae Wall, firstname.lastname@example.org.
