I got an email recently from Abigail Blodgett, a Sustainable Land Use Fellow with the University of Oregon Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENR) Program.
She told us about a recently completed white paper that advocates for making changes to local land use laws in order to allow urban homesteaders to raise microlivestock on their properties.
The paper describes the importance of local food systems, explains the benefits of and care required for different kinds of livestock, and has a model ordinance at the end of the paper. Here is a link to both the white paper and the news story announcing its release:
Thanks, Abigail, for sharing this valuable work!
