April Movies, Discussions and More

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.)

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
