What are the Geneva Peeps?
Geneva Peeps came to be in the month of May 2014. It’s an egg co-op: a few dozen folks coming together to cooperatively raise and care for egg-laying chickens on State Street in the City of Geneva.
How Geneva Peeps Works
An individual or family may volunteer for one shift each week. There are 14 shifts available: one each morning (at darn) and one each evening (at dusk). Morning shifts are responsible for letting the hens out into the yard, and evening shifts are responsible for putting the hens to bed. All are responsible for keeping the fed, hydrated, safe, and happy.
Each shift receives 1/14 of the egg production from the previous week.
Sustainability and the Geneva Peeps
Geneva Peeps is primarily concerned with chickens and eggs, but we understand that all things are interconnected. We are endeavoring to build a sustainable ecosystem; so on property you will see solar energy, rainwater catchment, raised community garden beds, compost, etc.
It’s a community project, so the community directs it. Come JOIN THE PEEPS and start building!
