Chickens to the Rescue- How Keeping Chickens Can Fuel The Local Food Revolution! Interview with Patricia Foreman Sustainable World Radio


Chicken expert and admirer Pat Foreman shares why she believes that chickens are an integral part of the local food movement. Foreman, author of the books City Chicks and Chicken Tractor- The Permaculture Guide to Happy Hens and Healthy Soil, talks about how chickens are talented composters, soil builders, living fertilizer machines, and bio-recyclers. Listeners beware! According to Foreman, chickens are also the gateway to other livestock.

G ot Chickens? A desire for sustainable, clean, wholesome food, and superior soil quality, has led more and more suburban and city dwellers to keep laying hens in their backyards and gardens. Across America municipalities are allowing, and even encouraging, residents to keep laying hens within city limits.

Listen to Patricia Foreman, author of City Chicks~Keeping Micro-flocks of Chickens as Garden Helpers, Compost Makers, Bio-recyclers and Local Food Suppliers, as she shares her humor, passion, and extensive knowledge about raising chickens in the cities and suburbs of America.

Patricia Foreman graduated from Purdue University with degrees in Pharmacy and Agriculture. At Indiana University's Graduate School of Public and Environmental Affairs she earned a Master of Public Affairs degree, with majors in Health Systems Administration and International Affairs. She completed the Virginia Master Gardener's program in 1999 and a Permaculture Design Course with Bill Mollison 1991.

Pat has kept poultry for over 20 years. Her experience includes operating a small-scale farm raising free range, organic layers, broilers and turkeys. She keeps a backyard flock of heritage chickens.
