It’s All About Urban Food Production

The theme of our entry in the Billings St Patrick’s Day Parade this year is “Chicken of the Seeds”… it’s all about urban food production! Whether it’s a micro-flock of urban hens or a garden of any size, we are here to encourage people to be a little more sustainable and self-sufficient, get outside and enjoy our beautiful state while growing some of our own food.

We are passing out non-GMO, open-pollinated, heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (www.RareSeeds.com) as well as healthy, delicious microgreen seeds from www.GrowingMicrogreens.com! We encourage people to look into urban hens (for current issues, see http://BillingsBackyardHens.wordpress.com) for delicious, nutritious backyard eggs. You can grow in a sunny window, a container on the porch, a backyard garden, or one of the community gardens in town… any way you do it, we want to get people excited to get out there, and GET GROWING, BILLINGS!
