No introduction yet

What neighborhood of NYC do you (or would you like to) keep chickens in?

I live in Central/Eastern Queens near Union Turnpike. I'd like to keep chickens collaboratively with a neighborhood org or community garden -- so finding/starting the garden is... the first step.

Where do you keep chickens or where do you plan to keep chickens? For example: in a community garden, an urban farm, a school garden, a backyard, etc.

Community Garden/ Urban farm.

Do you keep chickens now or would you like to start keeping chickens? Please explain your chicken situation!

No chickens of my own at the moment. Have tended to chickens, on infrequent visits to friends' farms in Hudson Valley.

    Hi Alice, I am looking forward to meeting you on Tuesday. I was wondering if you know anyone going to the NE Permaculture convergence? I am looking to carpool up there from Brooklyn. thanks

    Hi Alice, I would love to help find another spot for you this but, living in Brooklyn, traveling quite a bit to make my living while being involved in other community related things wouldn't make me a good candidate to do this. Sorry, I had no intention to criticize the location of the meeting yet not offer, or help find, a better location. I was just curious. I think I should actually attend a meeting first :) Hopefully I will be able to this fall. Thanks, David

    Hi Alice, I'm sorry the upcoming meeting as will be out of town but am interested to come to future ones so hope to make the next one. Just wondering, couldn't you pick a more appropriate location to hold these events? In my humble opinion Whole Foods Market is the antithesis of what permaculture stands for. There must be plenty of viable options for spots in a place as big as NYC to hold meetings like
    Just wondering. Thanks, David

    Yes I am hesitant to commit to a meal on either end as I have a big meeting Friday morning, but I definitely want to meet up with you at this event, so I'll touch base with you before and see where you're at! Also I want to have you all over at some point- for a meeting or a meal!
