500 Chickens is a partner project with 500 Gardens in Madisonville jointly dedicated to strengthening our community’s food sources, one chicken keeper at a time.
500 Chickens Objectives:
- Educate and support careful chicken keeping practices
- Create network of resources and idea sharing
- Bring the community together and create new friendships based on the shared enjoyment of chickens
Fresh eggs along with fresh veggies to increase the local food access. We’ve created a nifty Chickenkeepers Map that highlights where the flocks are in the neighborhood, so neighbors can get to know neighbors with a similar hobby.
