Posted by cjkrebs on April 13, 2013

Urban-Roots-FlierBig happenings next week! Public Session, a Film & our Next Meeting:

1) We’ll be back in front of City Council at Public Session this Tues. April 16 at 1:30 pm, presenting to city council the draft of changes to the hen ordinance.

We’ll also be inviting city council members to our next big event:

2. Wed. April 17, 7 pm. Rice Green Films Series. We’re co-hosting a donation-optional film showing about urban farming, plus Hens For Houston panel afterwards. Because what’s more sustainable and urban farming than keeping hens?
There will be free food, a free film, and excellent panel. The movie is called Urban Roots about urban farming and renewal in Detroit. We hope to see city officials there so come out and show your support!
6:30 pm – Doors open + free food + meet-a-chicken activities with Chickadoo-Suz
7 pm – Movie starts
8:30 pm – Panel begins
(Panelists include HFH leadership, BARC representative, urban hen owners, and of course a CHICKEN 🙂 )
The cinema is on the right just inside Gate 8 of Rice University off of Stockton and University. We look forward to seeing you there!

3) Our next meeting is Sunday April 21, 2-4 pm at Quality Feed on 4428 N Main. Don’t Miss IT! Should be lots of fun 🙂

Hope to see you at the film on Wednesday!
