City Chickens & Fort Hen

In 2010 we designed and built a coop for 50 chickens at the Imani Garden in partnership with New York Restoration Project. Our chicken farm, lovingly called "Fort Hen", serves as a site for educational programming on keeping chickens in the city, and a home for our flock of layer hens. We host free monthly City Chicken workshops in partnership with Just Food, and a 15 week Chicken Apprenticeship, and take our chickens on the road to local schools and museums for hands on youth programming.
