Jan 24, 2014


  Springfield residents curious about raising chickens in their backyard may want to stop by Benedictine University on Saturday, January 25. 

Mad City Chickens is one of five films to be screened at the 5th Annual Slow Food Springfield Film Festival.

The University of Illinois Extension is co-sponsoring the event.  

Extension Educator Deborah Cavanaugh-Grant joined WUIS Harvest Desk reporter Peter Gray to talk about the films and educational workshops coming up in February for those interested in community gardens and urban farming.
