Announcing the very first class of Seattle Free School! YAY!
The first class will be about Keeping Chickens in the City and will be held on March 15th at 10:30 am at the University Public Library on Roosevelt.

We may not have hand outs so participants are encouraged to bring paper and pens to write down important information.

There are also some canning classes coming up that we're doing with the King County Cooperative Extension in both May and August... check out the class page for more info.

Finally Getting Your Irish Citizenship will be happening soon as well. Anyone interested in this class should contact me asap.

Hopefully we'll be able to get some press for the first Seattle Free School class... at least get the class date published in various places. If anyone has any good press contacts please let me know.

In the meantime get yer chicken wranglin boots on and we'll see you in March!

Folks, one last point... if you'd like you can subscribe to our RSS feed... it's at the bottom of the blog page and just says subscribe. I try to update this thing about once a week or more so you'll have at least something to read!

Seattle Free School Update

Well, things are coming along nicely. We had a meeting with Olympia Free School and got to see their space which was great! They have been so helpful in starting out and Seattle Free School is on the cover of their publication so that's great.

We should be having a City Chickens class very soon and will just be asking folks to help out with flyering. The other thing that would be super helpful is for anyone with any publication connections to help us get publicity. I should have a press release about our first class soon and will send it out broadly to see what sort of publicity we can drum up. Since we won't be paying for anything connections will play a huge part in what we can accomplish.

Anyone that has any connections please let me know as I won't try to make some at whatever publications you already have.

Also if you think there are places that we should list classes let me know that too... I've made a tentative list but I'm sure I've left a ton of publications out.

Alright folks.... get your chicken herding hats ready!
