Free Online Chicken Keeping Class
July 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the chicken keeping community!
Keeping chickens is a great way to keep your food waste out of the landfill. Chickens can recycle your food scraps. Chicken keeping and composting methods go hand-in-hand to keep food waste out of the landfill while creating healthy soil.
This program offers a way for residents to contribute to Austin’s zero waste goal by eliminating food waste at home. Through the program, Austinites* can get up to a $75 rebate on either a home composting system and accessories, or a chicken coop for their home.
*City of Austin customers who pay the Clean Community Fee on their utility bills are eligible for the rebate. See the full terms and conditions. austintexas.gov/arrhomerebate
