Zilker Botanical Garden

Most any size garden can benefit from a few chickens. They root out persistent perennial weeds, eat insects, fertilize the soil, and provide eggs in the bargain! All it takes is a little planning and a small investment in fencing and shelter. Master Gardener Joy Williamson will explain how to select breeds, raise chicks, build and maintain a coop and how to protect these garden mascots from predators. Join us for this free seminar to explore the fascinating world of chickens in the garden!
This seminar is free and open to the public. It is presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners, a volunteer arm of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County. www.tcmastergardeners.org
