Bringing the Barnyard to the Backyard!

Our Farm. June.

Bringing the Barnyard to the Backyard

Last week, we installed a chicken coop at Goddard House Assisted Living in Brookline! Though chicken-keeping is typically only allowed in private residences, a special permit was granted for this first-of-its-kind project. In addition to our typical vegetable garden maintenance and education sessions at Goddard House, it is our hope that these new poultry will be therapeutic and enjoyable to residents and staff, alike!

While We’re on the Topic of Chickens…
