Holiday Festivities at Pringle Creek Community

Residents and chickens had a bit of fun this past Saturday celebrating the Easter holiday.  A number of children and their families came out and had a lot of fun with a holiday Easter egg hunt throughout the property.  There was also an opportunity for photos.  Colleen Owen, our Urban Farmer and gardening guru, Jonathan Schachter, our Director of Development, and one of our chickens took advantage of the photographic event and sat in for pictures.  Colleen used her chicken harness and leash to share the festivities with one of our chickens.  Despite the partly rainy weather, a good time ...

Spring brings Green building

Helping the Chicken to Cross the Road

The chicken harness has arrived!  Now Colleen can safely take a chicken out of the coop and give her an opportunity to go for a walk.                   It really is just another bit of fun over at the glasshouses.  Colleen always has something fun or whimsical going on over there - from her little garden fairy houses to the butterfly houses, both created by her father, and now the chicken harness.  Colleen is always happy to share all that she is doing with visitors.  Besides all of the various vegetables that she is growing for the CSA (community supported agriculture) ...
