As many of you know, the topic of Chickens in Castlegar has been on my mind for some time now. Well this week, on Wednesday, 6th of May at 7pm, Castlegar City Council is going to hold a public input session on the issue of urban hens as pets and for the production of eggs. This is an excellent time to have your say on the matter and hear the concerns or stories of others in the community and region.

Castlegar Chicken Week!

If that wasn’t enough, in conjunction with the Kootenay Food Strategy Society, UrbanWorkbench is proud to present a public screening of Mad City Chickens in Castlegar on the 7th of May, 2009 at the Castlegar and District Health Centre, ( in the Basement education room, just follow the signs). Here is one of the posters we’ll be distributing for this event.

Mad City Chickens Poster

This is a free event, donations are welcomed. We are hoping to get people out from surrounding communities that are thinking about chickens as well – so please pass this information onto as many people as possible. Use the contact form here if you have any questions!

  1. Hi Mike,

    Unfortunately I’ll be away for both the 6th and 7th events. But, if can you send me a pdf version of Mad City Chicken poster before Wednesday, I’ll forward it to the BCSEA email list.



  2. Hi Mike,

    I have put this baby into my calendar and I hope I can make it to the event. I have been arguing with my dad non-stop about this issue! I don’t remember what community it is but somewhere in our beloved Interior of BC they have been using goats as a means of weed control – a municipality somewhere… so cool. I am pretty happy that I found you via Twitter and I am *shocked* that we haven’t met. Hopefully we will tomorrow night!
