Hi All Chickeners and Friends of Chickens,
Are you ready for this year’s Chicken Coop Build!! The first one is in the Bronx at Kingsbridge International High School.
We're scheduled to meet two days: July 25 and 26, from 10am-6pm. In the past, with enough volunteers, we've managed to convert a heap of 2x4's, plywood sheets, and rolls of chicken wire into a shimmering, 128-square-foot chicken palace All within an 8-hour shift. (with some finishing touches on the second day)
Rain Date: Monday July 29th (ONLY IF NEEDED)
Everyone is welcomed. We're especially looking for folks who have a few skills with power tools (such as, electric drills and circular saws), but there are tasks for everyone, If you don’t have the skills we will teach you.
Lunch will be provided, most likely sandwiches. Bring sunblock, water, gloves, and, optionally, your own tools, although we always bring the Just Food toolbox.
The site is located in the Bronx at 2780 Reservoir Ave. Bronx, NY 10468
