Brook Park Chickens Receives a Grant!

Great news, all you chicken lovers! The Brook Park Chickens project has been selected for a grant from changeby.us through Citizens Committee! This grant will help pay for much needed food and supplies for our chickens to keep them happy and healthy! We are so grateful for this substantial funding and now we can focus on creating workshops, community outreach, and getting some Chicken Clubs started in nearby schools!

If you are a teacher in the South Bronx and want to bring your class to visit the coop or even start a chicken club, let me know. We are also looking into bringing chickens into schools to visit!

I must thank our volunteers who signed up on the changeby.us website - we got the 20 members to qualify and we could not have done it without you!

Thanks to Marissa of nourish-nyc who wrote up our event on her blog! Check it out here!
