Tonight at the North Oakland Senior Center there will be a public meeting to talk about zoning policies in this city. Think: owning chickens, whether or not you can have a rooster, raising quail or rabbits, growing chard, or growing chard that you make into a quiche that you sell… all these issues and more are evolving in Oakland.
For instance, remember reading Farm City author Novella’s blog? She lovingly told us of her gardening discoveries and mishaps, her family of animals and other goings on at her urban farm. But apparently she said too much – city officials started taking notes and serving her with fines. She isn’t the only one. The laws have changed to allow more places to be legal for growing food and having animals in Oakland within the last few months. There is still more changing to do.
