Event Description

Interested in fresh eggs but not sure how to care for chickens? Learn about backyard chickens, including where to source your hens, pest and disease management, feeds and bedding, choosing the right coop design, winter care, and of course, being a good neighbour.


Vicky Baker has over 10 years of experience gardening in urban centres, both in Montreal and Vancouver. As an advocate for food sovereignty, she practices urban agriculture both as the coordinator of the Cambie Communal Garden, and at her home in East Vancouver. Her passion for chickens was ignited as soon as she knew it was a possibility in Vancouver, and she has been exploring that world ever since. She keeps three chickens at her family home.

Cost $39 includes snacks
