The SEJ conference, http://www.sej.org/, was terrific. I always have a great time, and this year was no different. One of the highlights was visiting Will Allen's Growing Power in Milwaukee, http://www.growingpower.org/. He has over 300 chickens there for eggs, and about 50 Muscovy ducks, for meat, among other livestock. The farm itself is the last agricultural land within the city.
I returned home late Sunday night to find myself featured in a front page article in the San Luis Obispo Tribune, http://www.sanluisobispo.com/news/local/story/880802.html. The photos are delightful.
This article is a great example of the interest other SEJ members expressed at the conference. I talked with many people who are looking for information to help their readers, listeners and viewers get involved with chickens. I look forward to working with them.
