October 6, 2018 4:00pm- 6:00pm
Join the Maryland Agricultural Resource Council in celebrating the release of Bronwyn Mitchell-Strong’s new book Roost: Confessions of a First Time Chicken Farmer. This book signing event will also be coupled with a short intro to backyard chicken-keeping class where chicken keeper Heather Brack will bring in different varieties of chickens and eggs and give tips and tricks to start keeping chickens yourself! The 45-minute class starts at 4. The book reading and signing will follow at 5:00. You do not have to go to the class to attend the signing. Raffle prizes donated by The Mill. Plan to come early to explore the park. A portion of each book sold at the event will be donated to MARC to support ongoing agricultural education programs. The cost is free, but RSVP is required.
