Hilltop Urban Gardens’ Petting Zoo

Last week on Thursday, Hilltop Urban Gardens (HUG) hosted a petting zoo at their farm on the corner of 19th and Ainsworth. The animals, brought by Raven’s Grove Family Farm in Shelton, were tiny reminders of how it’s possible to have farms and sustainable food sources right here in the city.

Hilltop neighbors, including kids from the Al Davies branch of the Boys and Girls Club, attended the event. Petting zoo visitors got to see and touch rabbits, pigs, ducks, and goats.

Hilltop Urban Gardens is a wonderful addition to our neighborhood. Make sure to attend their other events. They work closely with the Boys and Girls Club and believe it is possible for everyone in our neighborhood to sustain themsleves through education and urban gardens.

We hope see the folks from Raven’s Grove Family Farm again soon. The petting zoo was fun. Our daughter’s still talking about it.
