Permaculture with Backyard Chickens and Squarefoot Gardening

By on November 25, 2014

In this video, you get a great tour of a modern chicken run for raising backyard chickens.  They get fresh eggs from humanely-raised chickens and organic produce from Carla Jean Oldenkamp’s Zen Hen House and square foot gardens. Along the way, she found meditative tranquility. They call their chickens their ‘Zen Hens’.  Using methods for several areas of their backyard, they show the well designed chicken run and how it is integrated into their overall backyard plan.  They also show how they are growing organic vegetables, squarefoot gardening, and companion planting to round out their overall backyard production area.
