Event Description

Presenter: Claire Bickle
Cost: $50
Have you ever thought of keeping chickens, love the idea of fresh eggs and garden fertilising machines but didn't know how to start? Perhaps you have chickens but would like some help with keeping them and your garden healthy? Come along and learn the ropes, share stories (and maybe have a cackle or two yourself) as we delve into the rich and rewarding world of rearing chicks, keeping chooks, council approvals, good neighbourhood relations and also managing to have a beautiful garden all at the same time in the subtropics.

Bring a hat, gloves, sunscreen, pen and paper.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
