PRESS RELEASE / ANNOUNCEMENTS Monday, July 13, 2015

The Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens welcomes 125 Baby Chicks!

The Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens has received 125 baby chicks from Fresno CA. We are very excited to have our new additions. The baby chicks will not only provide Fairview Gardens with eggs but they will be source of pest control, weed control, and fertility.  We plan to have a couple mobile systems where we can rotate them through the orchard and fields to eat insects and weed seeds as well as increase fertility with their droppings.  We should start seeing egg production from our new chicks in October!

About The Baby Chicks-
There are many different chicken varieties. Please come by the farm and see our new additions:
15 Black Austrolorp
20 Buff Orpington , golden and very friendly.
25 Rhode Island Red, really good foragers and find lots of insects.
25 Black Sex Link.
15 Ameraucana, lay blue/green eggs
