This just came across my "kitchen table".... I can see progress written all over it! What a terrific model for other cities/groups to utilize in getting the ordinances changed in their communities to enhance the producers ability to reach the local community.
"Urban Farming Approved in SeattleThe Seattle City Council on Monday passed legislation designed to encourage urban farmers. People would be allowed to keep up to eight chickens per house; roosters would be prohibited. The ordinance, which passed unanimously, also paves the way for urban farms and taller greenhouses. Specifically, it would allow: Urban farms of up to 4,000 square feet in residential zones. Food grown on site can be sold on site. There are limits on sales hours, amount of farm equipment allowed, and size of signs; and Greenhouses dedicated to food production to extend 15 feet above height limits in certain zones."
