Project Donation Time...At the change of each season we donate a feeder to a worthy chicken project.
The winter donation saw us head off to Werribee Park where a team of eager volunteers has created the ultimate chook house in the homestead precinct of Werribee Park. The fully enclosed fox proof area has its own growing shade of Scarlet runner beans, and a Lemon, Lime, Orange and Feijoa tree planted inside for shade and fruit. A team of four Work for the Dole volunteers, built the 8 by 7 m wire enclosure from recycled materials found at the park. The chook yard is part of the regeneration of the homesteads kitchen garden by members of the Karen community.
We enjoyed talking with Adam and checking out their chickens including 1 very large Australian Game…
