Come learn how to farm your own fresh, organic eggs with this workshop on raising chickens.  Learn the basics of brooding, coop construction, electric fencing, feed rations and supplements, and veterinary care.  The workshop will also include a tour of Mountain View Farm for an up-close look at their approach to raising chickens.

Shawna DeWitt is the co-manager of Mountain View Farm at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship.  Mountain View Farm is another of the Blue Ridge Center's innovative approaches to environmental stewardship.  In exchange for using our land, our resident farmers provide an important laboratory and classroom for exploring the interrelationships between food cultivation and the ecological values central to our mission.
