Happy chickens, modern sharecroppers and wild strawberries

Just came across this sweet story about a heritage breed of chicken that has been revived in India, to help counter the trade in industrial egg and poultry production.

And while we're in a positive mood, another happy story, about the rise of garden-sharing by urban gardeners.

On my eternal quest for food poems, I found this one by Helen Dunmore, called Wild Strawberries.

A very lovely poem, Rhona. I couldn't get through the ugliness of factory farming to the sweet story about the chickens, though, and I'm not a gardener as you know...but the poem by Helen Dunmore is delicious.
Love, Leah
