Support Bridge City Chickens

Saskatoon has a new group that is working toward allowing backyard hens in Saskatoon. They are going to city council April 3.

Last year, we hosted a monthly meeting where we discussed letter writing to local authorities to help effect change. One of the template letters we had was about backyard hens. Well, now is your opportunity to help! If you want to support Bridge City Chickens, you can download the template, fill in the blanks, and send it to your councillor to show your support.

Join the Facebook group if you would like to follow what is happening.

You can download the letter by clicking the link below (in MS Word format).

from the seedthemovie.com website:

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.

SEED is Executive Produced by Academy Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
