From urban chickens and beekeeping to year-round food gardening, fermentation and preservation, City of Portland’s Urban Growth “Bounty” will be offering over 70 classes throughout 2010. More than 700 local residents learned how to transform their yards into “urban farms,” preserve their harvest and keep chickens and bees thanks to the last year’s classes. The overwhelming response has led to a tripling of course offerings for the 2010 with an expanded roster. Classes for all skill levels are offered from February through November and held at locations all over the city.
