Reuse Renovation Presentation (With Hens!)

Hear the story of how Elizabeth and Patrick Donohoe turned scraps of old barn wood, melamine, windows, and hardware into a wonderful chicken coop and run, at our inaugural Reuse Renovation Presentation! "Chicks in the Hood" and "Poultry Pittsburgh"—with some chickens—will be on hand to answer questions about raising chickens. The presentation will be held at CJ this Saturday, April 18th at 11:00 am. Come into the store and follow the signs; please ask at the Information kiosk if you need any help.

If you love reuse, watch out for more presentations and workshops hosted by talented reusers each month. If you're a talented DIY-er, an independent artist, or an organization, and would like to present a Reuse Renovation Presentation, contact me here or call 412-243-5025 ext 12.

We hope to see you Saturday! --  Terry Wiles, Community Outreach Coordinator
