Welcome to City Hens In Roeland Park. This site is being created to provide an information outlet to our community. We are part of a growing number of citizens nationwide who are reclaiming their power to choose the source of their food and to live a sustainable lifestyle.
Keeping hens and growing your own food is no longer limited to rural settings. Exactly the opposite is true! Urban and suburban farming is growing by leaps and bounds as we are finding that the only truly safe food source, is one we can trace to the producer.
This could turn into a soapbox...and will from time to time. For now, this is the way we will distribute the lastest in our challenge to get a fair ordinance passed in our community of Roeland Park, KS. Expect meeting notices, commentary and discussion as we continue this process.
As this site grows, there will be links and resources provided to the ever expanding online community of back yard farmers and henkeepers. So we invite you to subscribe to recieve the notice via email when we post new information. Or you can join our group on Facebook.
