Harvey’s Coming Presentations
For the time being I am greatly reducing my travel and speaking schedule. At this time I have committed to only one speaking engagement in the current calendar year. (See below.)
- September 6-7, Monticello, Charlottesville, Virginia:
Last year at the Heritage Harvest Festival (held at Monticello, the restored estate of Thomas Jefferson) I presented on the following three topics:
- The Small-Scale Poultry Flock: Holistic Poultry Husbandry for the Productive, Integrated Homestead
- Gardening with Chickens
- Can We Keep a Home Poultry Flock without Purchased Feeds? I constantly experiment with new ways to feed my poultry flocks from home resources. I am pushing hard to develop strategies that will allow me to feed my poultry flocks entirely from home resources. I will report in this talk on strategies I am using, whether I have yet achieved zero feed costs or not.
I have not agreed with the organizers exactly which topics I will address at this year’s Festival. I will certainly give my signature presentation on holistic poultry husbandry, and most likely will report as well on the status of my home-feeding experiments, together with a third topic. When we have agreed on my topics, I will post them on this page. ~Harvey, January 25, 2013
