The application for the 2011 City Chicken Project is ready. If you know of any community gardens, urban farms, schools or other community projects that might be interested in keeping chickens, please pass this on to them. Just Food generally work with 2-3 projects per year. Main criteria:
Community groups of 8 or more people can apply for this grant. Individuals may not apply.
The community group must be located in NYC and must have enough outdoor space for hens (8 square feet per hen). This is for relatively small projects (3-20 hens). Larger projects will be considered, though our resources are limited.
Preference will be given to groups who plan to use the eggs to feed their community, and to groups that are located in neighborhoods that have fewer ways to get fresh, local food.
