City Chicken

The Cleveland City Council passed an ordinance Monday to allow chicken and bee farms inside city limits.

Some see this as a potential innovative use of vacant land that is, unfortunately, one of the biggest areas of growth in Cleveland right now.

While it may sound silly, the Gather 'round Farm on Cleveland's West Side already is already in operation. (We wrote about in this month's issue. Pick up February from newsstands or click here to see the story.)

I'm ending this blog post while I can still resist the urge to say the city's gone to the birds, use the phrase "chicken scratch" or use the word "cluck" in a way that is not family friendly.
