On Thursday, May 27, St Croix Valley Master Gardeners will hear Master Gardener Kim Kiiskinen of River Falls tell her tales of raising chickens for use and fun.

While not quite gardening, raising chickens in your backyard is becoming the "green" thing to do, with its resultant sustainability features. Learn about the benefits and perils of chicken raising from one who knows and has some interesting facts to share.

The meeting begins at 6:45 p.m. at the Unitarian Church on Hwy 65 southeast of River Falls, with Kiiskinen beginning her talk at 7:15 p.m.

Other activities such as the Community Garden New Richmond Service Day held on May 21, as the start of the summer community garden effort, and the upcoming June 5 Octagon House Plant Sale will be discussed.
