Maricopa County Food System Coalition Forum

to support and grow a food system in Maricopa County that thrives

Maricopa County Food System Coalition Forum is a social network

Do you love your chickens?  Dennis and Danielle (@ The Garden Pool) put on a great practical course.  It might be nice if you made a donation however as they IMHO should not be offering "free."  BSF larvae are an incredible resource for chicken owners.  I have seen BSF larvae incubators built into and directly above coops.   And of course they allow you to compost ALL kitchen waste and you can sell them.  The only downside is their seasonality---they like it hot.

Powell - thanks for this!  Also - thank you for mentioning about the donation - I agree with you.

BSFL... ick! I get them in my compost this time of year. Last year there were so many they were spilling out. I thought when the temps got too high they died though. They certainly are soldiers with that leathery carcass... 

I've some really interesting articles about SFL. Apparently they could be the worlds answer to a lot of waste issues.

bump...only 2 spots left for next week's class!

Composting including meat and cheese with them and selling them.

Hope some of you took advantage of this Sat.'s Duckweed course.
