Chickens, bees and house sales: Mayer school district in Lincoln Park

Oscar Mayer Magnet School is located in the heart of the DePaul neighborhood of Lincoln Park.  The school is well known to locals for its Garden Project. The kids work on the vegetable garden, raise honeybees and chickens all in the middle of a bustling residential area. I always stop and visit whenever showing properties nearby!
