Event Details
August sizzles, but we don’t have to. Bring a finger food snack and join us for some indoor fun and learning. Join the Austin and Central Texas Backyard Poultry Meetup on Sunday, August 17th from 2 – 4 p.m. for Movie Time! Food Forests 101 in the A/C (!!) at the beautiful Sustainable Food Center Headquarters. RSVP here. (We prefer you RSVP, but come on out either way).

Food forest...forest gardening...perennial garden. Whatever you call it, come learn more about another way to design a food system – and how poultry fit into it. We'll be watching excerpts from the Establishing a Food Forest with geoff lawton dvd (with permission for public viewing granted from the Permaculture Research Institute and EcoFilms Australia).

After the movie, join us for a panel on Food Forests with Kirby Fry of Texas Permablitz, and Elizabeth Walsh and Zach Herigodt with the East Feast Coalition. Daryl Stewart of the Ape99 Permaculture Meetup and John Van Lowe of Food is Free project will also be on hand to share experiences (and perhaps also share some growing goodies with everyone).

RSVP and learn more about our speakers on the Austin and Central Texas Backyard Poultry Meetup.
