Food is a critical component to creating resilient neighbourhoods.
There are an increasing number of jurisdictions that are allowing chickens. The reasons are clear - chickens provide protein, incredible fertilizer, pest control and are easy to maintain. But the biggest reason for keeping chickens is to get more control of our food supply.
I told "my chicken story" in a 13 part series on the "Urban Hens YQL" Facebook page between April 26th and May 11th, 2021. Hopefully some perspective will persuade the doubters to be more open to locally sourced food.
