Brook Park Chickens :: Support City Chicken Coops

Calling all supporters of sustainable, local food practices and anyone who loves a perfect farm fresh egg.  Just Food, a nonprofit that unites local farmers to city neighborhoods in NYC, has launched a new city-wide project to support urban chicken keepers and the growth of chicken coops.  Raising chickens in Manhattan and the outer boroughs? Yup.  The chickens provide fresh, local eggs, aerated soil, fertilizer for gardens and they're quirky educational tools to inform city kids about urban agriculture and fresh, healthy food.  

My good friend and talented photographer Lily Kesselman heard the call for chicken keepers and jumped on the bandwagon.  Her coop in the Bronx, Brook Park Chickens, is set to come to life this weekend with 15 chickens being delivered on Monday.  And I'll be there in full support - to help build the coop (I admit my craftsmanship skills are less than stellar), and to sponsor one of the chickens. We'll be meeting my adopted chicken, Jefferson, next week!  If you'd like to support Just Food's campaign or Lily's own Brook Park Coop, read more here.  Why support chickens of all things?? Because a) when was the last time you gave a little to charity?  b) you're supporting local food and urban farming and c) chickens and city coops are just plain cool!
