Is there anything better on a sunny Saturday than the hubbub of the farmer’s market? I think nay. Everyone is always cheery and sociable, the food trucks are full of ready-made deliciousness, and the farmers’ stalls inspire creativity with their wares. And when groups like the Vancouver Tool Library and Trade School Vancouver are there, it’s extra special. I met Chris Diplock of the Collective Research Group, and when asked what it is I’d like to share with members of my community, I rather excitedly declared, “Chickens!” Oh how I long for a backyard to house a little chicken coop filled with feathered friends who will let me eat their undeveloped offspring. I even have a book entitled, “How to Boil an Egg”, which gets back to the basics as well as offers up some new tricks. I digress….
Guess who has backyard chickens? Chris Diplock! who founded the Vancouver Tool Library after making a list of the all the tools he had to borrow from friends in order to build his backyard coop. Now I am on my merry way to sharing chickens! Life is good indeed.
