Advanced Topics in Chicken Care

OK, so you've gotten your first flock of chickens, or maybe you've even had chickens for a few years, but now all of a sudden, one of them won't get out of the nesting box and growls at you when you try to take her eggs! Or one of them has started limping and you're not sure why or what to do about it. What's a backyard chicken keeper to do when a beloved hen develops a behavioral issue or health problem?

Cooking Curriculum: Growing a Spring Crop, Eating in the Classroom

Get a jump-start on getting your spring garden planned. This workshop will give you all the tools you need to have a successful garden for your students in the upcoming spring. We will talk about what to plant and how to use the plants in your classroom in the fall. You will be given everything you need to plant your own classroom bed - seeds, a planting plan, and lesson plans. We will also do an actual cooking demonstration of the crops that you will be growing so that you are all ready to grow and eat fresh food with your class right out in your own school garden. These lessons are written for students ages 5-12. We welcome any and all youth educators working with kids in kindergarten through sixth grade. Whether you are a teacher with access to a school garden, a teacher aspiring to have a garden bed at your school, a parent looking for kid-friendly ways to engage with your kiddos in your personal garden, an afterschool provider, or anyone else in between, this workshop will be applicable for you. https://wasatchgardens.org/news-and-events/calendar/79

Square Dance Party

Join us for a Community Square Dance Party with the Rocketeers! We're a Square Dance Club that's been dancing in Salt Lake City for over 30 years. No experience is necessary. We'll show you some basic steps and get you out on the dance floor in no time. Square dancing is probably NOT what you think it is. It's usually presented in movies as a fairly "simple" activity (you know -- do-si-do, promenade, swing your partner, etc.). Nothing could be farther from the truth. Square dancing IS a lot of fun. Once you start, you'll probably find that you're hooked.
