My friend Yarrow is an urban homesteader whom discovered to her dismay that the City of Oak Ridge, TN doesn’t allow hens within city limits. Although I don’t have an interest in raising chickens for food or otherwise, I love her so I’ve been helping her to make changes to the antiquated ordinances that make food sources illegal.
Her goal is to promote the legalization of urban chickens in Oak Ridge while educating the community about backyard chickens, urban agriculture, and local and homegrown food production. Self sufficiency shouldn’t be held as a illegal act.
Here are some of the posters that I designed and created for her to help inform the public of why they should support ORBY and the raising of hens for eggs within the city limits of Oak Ridge, TN.
