Hi all! We had a quick digging session on Sunday and volunteer students from the South Bronx dug out the dirt on the site of the new chicken coop! This weekend is the build and we will be laying down chicken wire across the floor of the coop to protect the chickens, and then filling it back up with new, fresh soil! Thanks to our fabulous volunteers!
Please feel free to volunteer this Friday & Saturday September 16 - 17 from 10 - 6 for the build and meet the new hens on Monday, September 19th when they arrive from the Queens County Farm!!!
Almost all of the chickens have beens sponsored, but if you want to sponsor a hen, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Only 15 hens are available for sponsorship!
Thanks again to Just Food for your fabulous grant! Check out their website for more information on urban gardening, food justice, and chickens! Also, if you have the funds, attend their "Let Us Eat Local" event at the Altman building on September 21st. This event helps provide so much to our community!
