  My roommates and I have been on a path to achieve urban self sustainability.  Taking our baby steps in organic gardening, bio-dynamic farming, permiculture and all around basic survival-ism, we believe a chicken coop and a batch of chickens is the next natural project.  Help us feed the neighbors and ourselves with fresh eggs and organic produce while we face this economic scourge.    Please view the video presentation and supply list to get a glimpse of the current setup and layout of the proposed plans.Thanks for taking a gander at this proposal, Peace Out!Oh and here is a short video of the soil sifter/compost bin hybrid I built and designed months ago- this proves I got the skill to shuffle away the bills.  Thanks again, please donate!
