Please sign up to care for the POMS chickens

The success of The Farmers Market is because of what happens behind the scenes, and we need your help in taking care of our coops.

Caring for our chickens is a fun and rewarding activity and it is a great way for families to get involved (not to mention the fresh eggs you get to take home)!

No experience – No problem. On-going training is on Thursdays after school and on Saturday mornings. Additionally, instructions to access school and take care of coops will be emailed.

Caring for the chickens requires an hour or less of your time with flexible times on the dates listed (weekends and holidays).

Contact Angela Roth with any questions or to set up an alternate time for training.
