Companion Gardening with Chickens


Bonnie Jo Manion invites workshop participants to her own garden and chicken coop, and to meet her personal flock of chickens.  She will talk about and demonstrate how to successfully companion garden with chickens, and all that they give back to one’s garden.  She will cover raising chicken basics, how to create a garden which is advantageous for chickens, beneficial plants, and predator-proof tactics.


Bonnie Jo Manion is a garden writer, speaker, and author out of coastal North San Diego County.  Bonnie has been combining her love of gardening and her joy of chickens for more than a decade.  Bonnie is co-author of the new book, Gardening with Free-Range Chickens for Dummies.  Books will be available for sale and signing at this workshop.
