The Urban Livestock Expo is an annual event in April to celebrate Earth Day with free, family-friendly workshops on raising bees, goats, chickens, ducks, quail and more in your backyard, lead by expert urban livestock farmers in Chicago. 

If you or someone you know is looking to be part of the movement towards sustainable urban livestock, this event is a great way to get informed and ask Chicago growers questions on daily care, ideal breeds, troubleshooting and common problems, and tips for being a good neighbor with animals while living in the city. 

Workshops offered in English and Spanish.
