Chickens in....... Lakewood Ranch!?
City of Sarasota residents who want their children to have a better idea where food comes from will soon be able to drive to Lakewood Ranch to see a hen house. According to a recent Sarasota Herald Tribune article, Lakewood Ranch is adding a community "SmartFarm" at the entrance to a Pat Neal residential development and the farm will include a hen house.
We didn't see that coming.
While one Smartfarm is not the same as allowing chickens at Lakewood Ranch homes, it reflects an awareness of local food initiatives we have not seen here in the City.
