MICHIGAN, Marquette County CD – Attendees of a Marquette County Conservation District urban agriculture workshop held at an Ishpeming residence Saturday had a chance to see an example of a small backyard farm in the city while learning about the care and keeping of backyard chickens and rabbits, as well as a straw bale composting technique.

The workshop, Raising Small Livestock and Composting, aimed to teach attendees how to start raising their own chickens and rabbits by answering “some of the fundamental questions” about the process, said Jaime Beranek, urban agriculture assistant coordinator with the conservation district.

“We want to give people a jumping-off point if they’re interested in having rabbits or chickens in their backyard or starting a compost,” Beranek said.
