Amateur gardener and chicken rancher in Sunburst Farms, Phx, AZ. Involved in VPA since 2008, volunteering and contracting as its bookkeeper. I became its Program Coordinator in 2011, and have progressed to Data Management for the VPA in 2012. I departed the VPA in June 2013. Every year I buy trees at Fruit Tree Day, and have quite the orchard of edibles because of it - can't resist Fruit Tree Day!
I don't know why this is off center. I just copied and pasted the embed code.
Thank you Jane. I hope to expand my knowledge of local gardening and learn tips and tricks from other members who raise chickens and garden in their backyard as well. Have a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Not sure experience is what i gained but a few funny stories to tell in the future. Taking my time getting going with it. My first season of tackle football with both of my boys participating and me coaching set my timetable back a bit this fall. Hoping to get the chicks in february if the build goes well. Converting my kids old swing set into the coop. Being a civil engineer, i have some good ideqs as well as some i have picked up through forums. Take care
Thanks so much for your warm welcome Jane! I'm absolutely thrilled about the long growing cycle here in Phoenix and looking forward to learning lots of new tricks. I'll definitely start attending classes. Would you know when and where the "Native Foods: Beyond Mesquite and Prickly Pears" speaker series presentation is? And would you know if there are actually multiple sessions of the Lonetti residence Urban Orchard tour or just on 12/10 or 12/17? I'd defintely like to go to that! I hope to meet you at a future event! Thanks, Carol
Thanks Jane for the welcome message. Much appreciated. Looking forward to learning and sharing where I can. :-) Saturday Tour De Coops is going to be so much fun and great timing as we've been trying to figure out over past few weeks what kind of Chicken Coop to build. It will be great inspiration seeing the cool ones around Phoenix.
