Good and bad news in Norfolk. I talked to Bryn (quoted in the articles above) at the farmer's market recently...

The city council is going to vote on removing the beekeeping ban next month. So far, Bryn has heard from every single council member that they plan to vote for the ban removal Hurray! I will be sending a letter in to my representative soon, so that's it's fresh on her mind when the vote comes up.

But, on the flip side, Bryn has had to "cease and desist" keeping her chickens. Even though it's not illegal here to keep livestock on property zoned for commercial use (they were to live at the farmer's market), the city set up so many hoops to jump through that it became impossible - architect's designs for the henhouse, an official waste management plan, etc. So the hens are spending their time on a farm outside the city while Bryn tries to fight for the ability to bring them back to the market Angry
