Here at Kulisha, we believe that knowledge of our food systems is a critical part of a child's education. Unfortunately, all too often this is taught in a classroom, where the details are lost on children who never had the opportunity to form a direct connection with farmlands and animals.
Backyard chickens offers the chance for all children to engage with farming. Simple, low maintenance, and capable of producing food in the form of eggs every day, chickens are a powerful tool in experiential learning.
