LARGO - Want to learn how to grow your own food or raise chickens in your backyard? How about expanding your interest to owning an urban farming business?

Pinellas County Extension’s Urban Farming Small-to-Large will cover everything from the backyard to the market on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The urban farming conference - the first of its kind in Pinellas County, will be held at Pinellas County Extension, 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo.

The conference fee is $7.50 for the morning or afternoon sessions, and $12 for the full day.

Urban farming promotes self-sufficiency, sustainable living and the efficient use of space. Learn the latest trends in hydroponic vegetable gardening, backyard chickens and integrated pest management - the economic control of pests with minimal environmental impact.

The morning sessions, geared to homeowners and commercial farmers, includes:

• Overview of hydroponic systems

• Chickens 101

• Integrated pest management

The afternoon schedule with a focus on commercial urban farming includes:

• Getting started, business planning and cost analysis

• Cottage industry regulations and marketing
