came across this in my wanderings

Bill Bilodeau: urban permaculture and community building

"Bill has created an organic garden paradise on this lot. Complete with several dozen chickens, a kenaf forest to feed them"

the leaves are high in protein and are edible
chickens can also eat the leaves

i've ordered some seeds from e-bay
will try growing them next year

Does anyone new of a good supplier for a small amounts? I don't know how well it would grow in my area, but i'd like to try planting some. (preferably the rounded leaf verity, less likelyhood of it being mistaken for other similar looking illegal plant varieties. )

i purchased seeds here at Bountiful Gardens...it grew well here in eastern Washington, but i started seeds in the greenhouse early and transplanted.
