Backyard Hens = Local Farming

Posted in City Wide, Updates, Ward 5


There has been a lot of discussion lately about a pilot project that will allow locavores to keep #backyardhens and #backyardchickens in four Toronto wards: Ward 5 (Etobicoke-Lakeshore), Ward 13 (Parkdale-High Park), Ward 21 (St. Paul’s), Ward 32 (Beaches-East York).

@TorontoStar reports on this emphasising that it can be a healthy and fresh source of food.
