now we have chickens
have had them for 14 years
we know a lot about chickens
feed them provide water and safety
they will give you eggs in return
bug control
lots of fertilizer
in our case they make our compost for us

heres why we go on the tour
we get to talk to other chicken raisers
of course
these are mostly inside the city
we always learn something new

at the start of this tour
it begins at the sunshine community gardens in central austin
there are it seems over a hundred gardens in there
the day of the tour what i like is that the gardeners are there
working in their gardens
i could do the whole tour just in the gardens
asking each gardener questions and seeing what they
are growing
that experience there is worth the price of admission

we do go on the tour
this year they have each of the sites labeled as to whether
they have composting or gardening or rainwater collection
or xeriscaping or a pond
many have all of them

it was a tour two years ago where i learned how to do
my beds in my garden that has greatly increased its
production and decreased the amount of water thats used

i also have gotten a lot of ideas for my yard
rainwater tank ideas
pond ideas
yes the way i make my compost using the chickens as
my composters
i got from this tour
so if you think you want
a compost pile
rainwater collection
a xeric yard
or a pond
this is the tour for you and your family

if you have kids they will absolutely love this tour

come on and do the dance with all of us
the funky chicken one
