Girls Garage began construction of our Chicken Coop

This fall, Girls Garage began designing and building a chicken coop at the North Richmond Farm, applying skills in carpentry, drafting, geometry, welding, and more. They researched chicken behavior and the environmental needs of chickens, and brought their creative ideas to life through a group design process. Construction of the chicken coop began in the workshop at Girls Garage with the first site work date October 26, 2019. The girls anticipate completing installation by Spring 2020. This comprehensive design/build project will challenge girls to work as a team and build a beautiful coop that will live in the community. We’re looking forward to a well-designed and well-built coop that will last us for several years.
