Join Master Gardener Candice McLaren and learn about the joys of keeping chickens without annoying your neighbors. Find out what the best breed is for you and your family, the beautiful options there are for your birds and eggs, and if raising chicks or rescuing from Animal Services is right for you. You’ll also get great ideas about how to design and place a chicken coop and how to transition baby chicks to the coop.
The Santa Cruz Oil Painters (SCOP) are a
group of Santa Cruz area artists at all levels. Organized by painters
working in the oil medium, membership has been opened to artists working
in other mediums as well.
SCOP is dedicated to providing opportunities to gather, network and
benefit from each others’ painting experiences and to grow artistically.
Weekly plein air painting outings are arranged in Santa Cruz, Monterey
and other Bay Area counties. Members have access to an extensive and
growing library of instructional DVDs. Art workshops and retreats are
arranged to further their memberships’ art education.
