Treat your chickens.
Even if you don’t have a large space for your chickens to roam, a bit of fresh pasture is a treat for them. This pasture seed mix of grasses and legumes is meant to make a forage that’s quick to establish, tolerant of poorer soils, highly digestible, and very nutritious. What does all of this mean? Happy chickens and better eggs.

Growing gardens and communities in unexpected places
This is the seventh in our biweekly series from Amy Pennington – urban farmer, founder of GoGo Green Garden, and author of Urban Pantry and Apartment Gardening – on how to start growing your own food, no matter how tiny your garden-to-be is. Today: Amy explains how to become a pro at crop rotations and plant families. For the soil health of your garden, for the productivity of your plants, and for an increased harvest, just plan your garden's year with a few simple principles in mind. Now that your beds are prepped, your seeds are started and your soil is being built up, it's time for the best part of urban farming: planting. Before sowing seed and planting small starts in the garden, it's best to have a planting plan. As we discussed in an earlier City Dirt, you should by now have a garden space ready for planting and your garden wish list. Using the wish list and your map, you can begin mapping out and implementing a year-long garden plan. Here are a few key concepts that are helpful to understand before mapping out your beds.
