From April – June 2013, a small fence was added to the Organic Garden to keep the turkeys and chickens in their own space. The frames of the fence and gates were built using redwood branches, and wine barrel staves were then attached to the frame. This was a low cost and beautiful additional to the garden.
The top of the arbor will be completed once large size redwood branches fall again:
A new project was started in 2017 to raise the fence to keep the chickens inside their fenced yard and to keep out the predators, such as a local bobcat and foxes. Instead of just adding redwood branches, an idea came to mind…artsy wine barrel rings with wire spider webs.
