Urban Poulty at Somerville's Relish

Somerville stakes its claim as the first urban agriculture zone in the Commonwealth, and we’ll get to more on that later this week when I review a great get together at Union Square’s Relish that we were able to attend thanks to our great friends at Eventbrite.

But, here’s your teaser for that: Boston is in the midst of looking into its own regulation to allow residents to keep backyard chickens and other types of small agriculture. That would of course be Article 89.

And in my head, they had to work all through evening, until the waking hours. It’s not true, that I know of, but if it was, I would headline the story “Boston Stays Up All Night to Get Clucky.”
