Taking Chickens to the People




Uncle Dale is a Farm Management Specialist at the University of Maryland. Last summer he started taking his chickens on the road. The program is called "Loan a Layer" and Dale takes his collapsible chicken coop and three hens to different schools and organizations around the state, focusing on those in inner cities who don't have access to agriculture on a regular basis. Read more about this program and see more pictures on the University of Maryland's College of Agriculture &Natural Resources website.

What are some of the ways you share your passion for backyard farming with others?
