Chicken Love



In advance of publication of the book series I am authoring, I will be doing a number of promotional videos, discussing everything from chickens, to canning, to shopping at farmer's markets, and beyond.

Below is the first video clip. It was filmed by my friend and editor, Nicole McConville, at my home earlier this month. I invite you to view it and pass it on to any friends of fine feathered friends that you may know!!

Hello Ashley,
Found your link on AV mamas. Enjoyed the chicken video and will bookmark your blog to follow your progress. I'm pretty new to the area (almost one year) and also working on creating a homestead. Mine's in in West Asheville. We've got bees, veggy gardens and fruit trees. We'll get chickens and ducks in the spring.
Have you read Sharon Astyk? She rocks: http://sharonastyk.com/. Another great resource is www.pathtofreedom.com. They are friends of mine from LA. You wouldn't believe what they do with a 1/5th of an acre.
The Buncombe Cty. Beekeepers (www.wncbees.org) has monthly meetings with lots of old timers and newbies sharing information and snacks. They are the ones who put on the Bee School. Check 'em out.

Hi Jennifer! You've certainly settled in a wonderful community! I hadn't heard of Sharon Astyk, but checked out her website. She's fantastic! Thanks for clueing me in.
As for WNC Bees, I took their Beekeeping Introduction several weeks ago and begin beekeeping school in February!
