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!
