LH211 Needs Enrollment

Why not consider LH211A—Beneficial Beasts?

With urban homesteading growing ever more popular, many students are interested in learning about both cultivated and wild beasts in the garden and landscape.   In this course, you’ll explore how to raise different animals in the urban landscape, as well as learn about the wild ones that might be found there!

In LH211A, you’ll learn about:

  • Raising bees, chickens, pigeons, rabbits, turkeys, ducks, goats, and even snails!
  • Setting up and managing an aquaponics system to raise both vegetables and fish.
  • Either encouraging or managing wild creatures commonly found in the garden, including birds, insects, bats, and aquatic ecology, as well as squirrels, raccoons, opossums, and deer.

The course consists of both lecture and lab, including some hands-on work with beneficial beasts, along with field trips to a variety of local urban homesteads, farms, and natural areas.
