Support Bridge City Chickens

Saskatoon has a new group that is working toward allowing backyard hens in Saskatoon. They are going to city council April 3.

Last year, we hosted a monthly meeting where we discussed letter writing to local authorities to help effect change. One of the template letters we had was about backyard hens. Well, now is your opportunity to help! If you want to support Bridge City Chickens, you can download the template, fill in the blanks, and send it to your councillor to show your support.

Join the Facebook group if you would like to follow what is happening.

You can download the letter by clicking the link below (in MS Word format).

Introduction to Permaculture course – March 26

 We’re doing it again! Intro to Permaculture Workshop

Date: Sunday, March 26, 2017

Place: Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre – 202 Avenue C South, Saskatoon

Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOur Introduction to Permaculture Workshop is a great place to both start and deepen your knowledge of permaculture.

The day will begin at 9:00 AM and go until about 5:00 PM, with a few breaks during the day, including lunch (which is not included but there are plenty of places to go nearby and there is a small kitchen in the training facility).

As part of the training, you will have an opportunity to do some design on your own yard, so bring along rough measurements and an idea of your sun exposure and yard slope. If you do not have a yard, or like your yard as it is, you’ll be able to join up with someone else to help them with a design.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACost is $70 for Permaculture Saskatchewan members/$80 for non-members.
