Please join NOFA-NJ online for a class on keeping backyard chickens. Recent ordinances have allowed people with fewer than five acres of land in some areas to keep chickens – something previously prohibited. Joseph Heckman, PhD, Rutgers Professor and NOFA-NJ Board member, will lead the workshop. In this workshop, you will learn some of the typical ordinance requirements, using the Eatontown Ordinance 03-2017 as an example. You will learn about the proper care of backyard chickens, along with information about how to continue learning. Specific topics covered will include breeds, coops, pests, predators, and winterizing. Registration is required, and member cost per attendee is $10, non members $20.
