all are welcome to join and see the coops.  three are already situated in the courtyard + are looking slick (other than just being wet).  cross your fingers the weather cooperates tuesday.  hope to see you all tuesday!


this coopetition, hosted by beintween and cream city hens, aims to raise awareness for urban agriculture, promote the reuse of salvaged/discarded materials, and challenges both designers and builders with a pragmatic + collaborative opportunity.  what else could you want?  how about some fresh eggs?  if you build it, they will come.
