Urban Chicken Husbandry


With winter showing signs of weakness it is time to look forward to spring.  There are a lot of people in the LVL1 community that have interest in urban agriculture and we plan to offer a few talks and events based around this through out the year.  This season will start out with a talk on keeping chickens in an urban environment.  This talk is meant to give anyone with an interest in keeping chickens a better understanding of what it will take along with the pros and the cons.  This is a free event that is open to the public so come out and meet with interesting people and chickens alike.

February Freeduino Frenzy Workshop 2/13


Greetings –

February Freeduino Frenzy is a workshop that will happen on Feb 13, 2011. It will consist of several experiments that will teach the student how to do basic circuits and coding on the Freeduino (Arduino) platform. Some of the projects will closely follow the Spring Training from the Spring of ’10, some of the projects are brand new! Sign up and lean valuable skill on how to use and program your Freeduino.

You will need to bring a laptop and a Freeduino or Arduino or clone. Do not sign up if you do not have a laptop or Freeduino! You will need the laptop to program the Freeduino.

If you can, please download and install the Arduino Programming Software on your laptop as described here. That would save some time.

BTW – this is called a Frenzy because I know I have too much stuff packed into an afternoon. All of my instructions will remain online so you can revisit them whenever you want. I hope we will make it through everything – but no promises.
