Last night something fairly strange happened. A person very close ( a chicken keeper by the way…. Already compliant with the city’s proposed ordinance change) called me to let me know that they had been talked to pretty harshly by a neighbor……. with regards to the chickens, they assume.

So, i want to encourage everyone to keep getting out the message of clean, local, home-raised, neighbours-helping-neighbours kind of food despite, what seems at times, a wall of apathy amongst…Continue
