Growing food and medicine for healthy (organic) chooks

If you have chooks, then this workshop will get your tail feathers wiggling.

I grow lots of fresh food for our chooks who are a happy healthy bunch. I also grow herbs tpo promote hen health and layer certain herbs into the nesting boxes as aromatherap[y for our hens. They are happy layers and even the hen who doesn't lay loves it too! (Theres one in every hen house isnt there?)

Good quality fresh eggs and healthy hens are dependent upon things other than a good quality feed though. Do you know that you can increase the beneficial Omega 3s in your eggs and the Vitamin E content just by adjusting the hens diet? 

And, by using a range of medicinal and culinary  herbs in the hen house, you can reduce or eliminate insect and disease issues. 

However, how you keep them in an organic system and how to keep them free of insect problems can be a bit tricky. I don't use harsh chemicals, and I grow our hens and eggs organically with an easy recipe for success.

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.
