We ran into Dan who oversees much of the movement of materials and such and he was happy to give us a tour of the Farmers & Builders gardens and coop.
Young chickens and laying hens were all making the quietest of coos and check-check-checks when we climbed up into the coop.

Peckham Street Farm in the Broadway-Fillmore area is on it's way.
