Geneva couple featured in Christian Science Monitor for bringing chicken keeping to city residents

It started with controversy in Geneva in 2015.

Now the Geneva Peeps egg farm has garnered the national spotlight in the April edition of the Christian Science Monitor.

The feature by Lynn Freehill-Maye contains an interview with Jeff Henderson and Jackie Augustine, a local couple that started the local running event Seneca7, and the ItStinks landfill odor website.

News coverage at the time of the project’s start discussed protests and lawsuits that faced their effort to bring chicken keeping to families in Geneva.

The article points out that there are now 40 Geneva families who take turns tending over 100 hens and earning a share of the eggs in the process.

The Seneca7 relay event was cancelled this year due to COVID-19, but the positive press about another of this team’s projects served as a bright spot for the city of Geneva.

The Geneva Peeps facebook page provides information about joining for interested members of the community.
