Community Garden Profits
My chickens are content and giving back--which is their role. A local community garden collected the chicken house and run, transported it across town, and set it up under two large mulberry trees. The moving event was multicultural and multi-generational. Wilma, the more docile of the three hens, even laid an egg before I left so that I witnessed the newbie chicken stewards glory in the bounty of animals working for earth restoration. I selected the community garden as the recipient of my chicken set up because it is the pivotal point for urban agricultural education within a neighborhood exploring ways to bring real food into people's lives. As an additional bonus, I will supply resource help to them as they embrace the beauty and challenges of living local.
