Mad City Chickens
April 20, 6:30 potluck; 7:15 movie; 8:30 discussion
The Longfellow Transition group will be showing Mad City Chickens at our monthly potluck. The movie is about keeping chickens in your city yard. Some of our regular movie-night attenders are chicken-keepers so if you come for the potluck, you may be getting the inside dish on chickens and roosters at your table.
Our guest speaker this month will be one or both of the owners of Egg|Plant Urban Farm Supply, located at 1771 Selby Ave in St. Paul. Egg|Plant sells chicks and chicken supplies and offers classes on raising chickens. (We stopped in the shop last week and it was delightful. They also sell gardening supplies, canning-dehydrating-fermentation supplies, and cheese-making supplies.)
