Caprine Curious? If you've ever considered raising goats, this is a great class to get you started! Come learn the ins, outs, ups, downs, and nitty gritty truth about keeping goats in an urban setting. In this hand-on workshop, we will discuss the basic requirements for raising goats including appropriate breeds for small spaces, food, water, shelter, health care, herd management, neighbor relations and local laws. You will get to meet a few goats and even try your hand at milking! You'll also see how to give a vaccine shot and trim hooves. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR Havenscourt Homestead's Kitty Sharkey is an urban homesteader, consultant, and educator who believes that "You don't have to move to change the place you live." After purchasing a foreclosed home in East Oakland, she began the process of transforming an empty yard into an urban oasis. She has since become a master of small space design and utilization, packing an entire urban farm into her 2,000 square foot back and side yards. Focusing on livestock, Kitty raises goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, quail, and honeybees. She also practices raised bed and container gardening with an emphasis on utilizing vertical space and water conservation. Aside from typical homesteading activities like gardening, preserving, cheese making, baking and brewing, Kitty also enjoys fishing and foraging for mushrooms and other wild edibles.
