About Mary

I live in the middle of Columbia, Missouri in a small house on a smallish lot and share it with a handful of hens. I teach classes on chicken rearing with various local organizations. I’m an accountant by trade, but at heart I’m a homebody. I just love taking care of my space and my community.  I believe in Food Not Lawns and the urban homestead/food movement.  I reuse, repurpose and scavenge the streets and dumpsters.

This blog is dedicated to information on chicken rearing, supplies, trouble shooting, local poultry news, my own poultry adventures, and random homesteading topics.
