Chicken Class at the Seattle Free School

I swear, I'm done with poultry as of this post, but I just learned about this class and wanted to post a notice. The brand-new Seattle Free School is offering its first class the weekend after next:

Keeping Chickens in the City

University Branch of the Seattle Public Library

Saturday, March 15, 10:30 a.m.

The teacher is Jessica Dally, who appears to be the driving force behind the Seattle Free School. That's because, of the courses that are currently being planned -- several of which I want to take -- she possesses the qualifications to teach most of them:

Cheesemaking (Dally was a former cheesemaker for Samish Bay Cheese)

Canning (she's also a Master Canner/Food Preserver)

Basic Auto Repair (former ASE Certified Automotive Technician)

Keeping Chickens in the City (chicken-herder in Seattle for 4 years)

Beekeeping (has kept bees in Seattle for 3 years)

Getting Your Irish Citizenship (you can guess this one)

There doesn't seem to be a sign-up policy for the chickens class, but if you want to be put on the mailing list or if you're interested in teaching a course yourself, email the school at seattlefreeschool@gmail.com.
