Movable chicken coops?!  Very cool.  Brandon thought it was interesting to learn that they keep chickens, geese, turkeys, and ducks on this farm!

Brandon really enjoyed “aerating” or “chopping up” cow poop to make manure!  He says “he was happy to make food to feed the plants on the farm.”

We think that there was a really good turn out for this event!  Thank you to Perennial Roots Farm for being part of educational events like these on the shore!  A special thank you to the Eastern Shore Resource Conservation & Development Council for sponsoring No Limits’ participation. It was really cool and we hope to see you again for another event soon!
