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 prepare you to set up your own backyard hen house.
About the presenter:
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.DailyEggs.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.
