Eco-Holiday Gift: Adopt a Chicken!

Are you still looking for that perfect Holiday gift? Want something that is meaningful, comes with no packaging and won’t end up in the landfill? Here’s an idea . . . Adopt an Urban Sprouts chicken!

Make a gift to Urban Sprouts in honor of a friend or family member. For your gift of $50 or more, you can sponsor one of our chickens, and we’ll send a photo of the rooster or hen you choose to adopt.

Check out glamor shots of the four chickens you can choose from.

You can even become pen pals . . . er, if you live in the Bay Area you can come visit your chicken and even take home an egg!

First, make your gift here.
Then, be sure to email me with the name of your honoree and your rooster or hen of choice.

Want a smaller gift? For your gift of $35, adopt an Earthworm or a Banana Slug (you'll receive their photos, too)!

Happy Holidays! Enjoy the Season!
