A Hen on My Way Through Spring Break

At the bottom of this photo you should see a chicken that I saw at a garden local to Morningside Heights. As somebody passionate about sustainable food systems, urban gardens excite me for their community-based approach to solving systemic problems in our nation’s food system. Alongside providing tiny pockets of carbon sinks and habitats for animals, they also provide a local greenspace, which can be difficult to find in urban environments. To me, this chicken poking around a tiny garden close to campus represents all of this. I was delighted to see it on my walk back from Butler after a long study session.
