Chicken and Chairs

The Chocolate Factory roof farm off Parnell Street, with its beautiful views over Dublin and the snow-capped Wicklow Mountains is a surreal place. Shielded from the noise of the city, this new test site for urban farming in the centre of Dublin provides an unexpectedly peaceful retreat, not only for a dozen happy chicken but also for nature loving city dwellers who are preparing the roof for the first growing season this year. The result of todays hands-on workshop was a bench with flowerpot armrests.
