Last Friday, a couple folks from No Limits attended an educational workshop held at Perennial Roots Farm on “Permaculture Profits: Integrating Specialty Crop Production & Livestock Management”.

Amy says “the daddy pig found his crew and his house!” Livestock management for small farms can be fun!

Feed on Brandon, feed on!  The piggies say “Oink oink!  Yum!”

Movable chicken coops?!  Very cool.  Brandon thought it was interesting to learn that they keep chickens, geese, turkeys, and ducks on this farm!

Brandon really enjoyed “aerating” or “chopping up” cow poop to make manure!  He says “he was happy to make food to feed the plants on the farm.”

We think that there was a really good turn out for this event!  Thank you to Perennial Roots Farm for being part of educational events like these on the shore!  A special thank you to the Eastern Shore Resource Conservation & Development Council for sponsoring No Limits’ participation. It was really cool and we hope to see you again for another event soon!
