Join us at Scissortail Microfarmsin creating explosive abundance with a weekend permablitz! This site had its original Permablitz done 3 years ago, so you can see how things are doing and learn from the owners' mistakes and successes.
• Come for as little or as long as long as you'd like for the event.
* The Permablitz will be 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Watch for updates in the case of severe weather (but we are pretty tough!)
• Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days. Dinner will be provided for campers.

Austin's Funky Chicken Coop Tour is back for an 8th year and this time we've really got something to crow about! The purpose of this tour is to encourage city residents to raise chickens at home by demonstrating the many ways that chicken (and other poultry) housing can be incorporated into urban residence without violating city ordinances or creating a nuisance. Our theme this year is Chickens as Zero Waste Heroes.
