Monday, March 18, 2013, from 10 a.m. to noon and continues each Monday. Cost: $20/student/class (ages six and up); includes all needed supplies. Parents and younger siblings observing the class are free. Sliding-scale pricing is available for multiple-child families and package rates are also available as this will be a weekly progressive class. Parents must stay and watch their own children. The class is at your own risk as accidents can always happen when animals are involved. You are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and stay after for fun and fellowship.
The first class has already passed and covered basic goat handling and goat grooming; however, families are encouraged to leap right into this ongoing series. Future topics will include goat feeding, stable care, kidding, milking, etc. They also plan to cover chickens–including feeding, hatching eggs, chick care, etc.
