2019 Coop #8
Science, art and poultry all mix at our little urban “farm.” Our flock of five — each named after royalty — live like queens in a movable A-frame coop. These girls are truly lucky to live with plant scientist Chris, who is working on a dwarf-tomato plant breeding project (Cluck! Cluck! Lots of “test” tomatoes to eat all summer long…). And with writer Karin, who was inspired to pen a visually gorgeous and poetic book, “Chicken Haiku,” after watching the flock’s antics. Tomatoes, books, chickens — so much to take in at our vintage stone house.
Additional parking for this coop is available in the parking lot at 601 St Mary’s street (north west corner of the intersection of St Mary’s and Johnson streets).
