Our local Chicken Expert just sent this info…
The Center for Sustainable Community (in Stelle, IL) is hosting a coop tour on August 1. It includes a tour of their land, including the chicken co-op. CSC is an intentional community created by a group of Rogers Park residents. About 2+ hours south of Chicago, it is literally in the middle of “nowhere” — meaning corn and soybean fields — an oasis of communal living. Come and learn more about chickens, orchards, and gardens in a rural oasis.
