Backyard chooks

Sunday 15th April at 10.00am

Integrating chickens in to your garden can be highly beneficial!

Not only do you enjoy a constant supply of fresh eggs every day, but when harmonized correctly in your garden, backyard chooks can be higly efficient pest controllers, and also valuably fertilise your garden. 

Chickens are also great for turning and improving your soil as you rotate them through your garden beds.

Come along to The Diggers Club at The Botanical Gardens and meet Adrian, and learn all there is to know about backyard chooks - every garden needs some feathery friends for both garden and human health!


Presented by Adrian Burgess. Adrian is an avid chook lover, with a wealth of knowledge on backyard chicken health, integration and management.
