Miami Dade County Council: Allow citizens to legally keep chickens in their backyards


In these challenging economic times, sustainability and permaculture have become viable options in every community. These choices encourage individuals to minimize their impact on our environment while taking a proactive stance in terms of pesticides and GMOs. As we learn more about the impact of shipping our food and the conditions of large scale farms, it is a logical next step to encourage our citizens in creative options. 

We believe the local ordinances on keeping a limited number of chickens must be revisited to allow for our changing economy. While we understand the reasons for these restrictions in the past, many of those justifications are no longer valid. Join us in exploring new ground in sustainable living and permaculture in Miami.
