I grew up in Montana where we raised animals and food of all sorts. I moved to the city to go to school…and stayed. Although I love Portland, I missed some of the ‘homemade’ ways of country living, so I decided to learn how to grow and raise more of my food, even in the city, in constricted spaces and with animal limits that are new with the urban territory.
It’s been a wild ride! Learning how to build my own chicken coop (which took almost an entire summer), keep my chickens healthy and happy, and raise enough food (for more than a snack) in these small city spaces.
I currently own 10 chickens, one cat, and several raised bed gardens. And I’m happy. (How can you have chickens and NOT be happy??). Please join me as I chat with you weekly about chickens, food, gardening, canning or other city farming mishaps and adventures.
