What some haitians practice is vodou, santeria is practiced by some cubans and Puerto ricans They both involve animal sacrifices but they are different "religions". I do get your idea though, this is more about hipsters and fads than poor people making ends meet.

Anyway I don't think I wanna have roosters and goats for neighbors. They are loud. I'm also a little disgusted with hen droppings Yuck. They smell so disgusting. If you get the dirty neighbor, good luck with the refreshing country aroma. It sounds cute in theory but in practice no.

Yes, gardening is a fad. So is organic, all-natural, and slow food. You'd better write letters warning everyone that this just a phase and they'll be tossing their hens away next year for the next hipstet fad. You know, like Robyn's iphone. (sigh)


Do the people in those photos look like hipsters to you? I can promise you this Eric Boyd guy is not a hipster, who apparently attended too. Oh, and nothing thst makes noise would be allowed. "If it crows, it goes". Permitting, people. Just like in CHI, ATL, NYC, POR, SEA, etc.

I guess you should do some research/contact those leading this policy change.

Clearly you have valuable insight about this issue.

How many seats are there in that room? 100-200? The room looked smaller than the one we use for the annual meetings of our HOA. Robyn

Thanks for the correction on the names. Did you catch the WSJ article (mentioned in other places) about the disgusting Giant Snail invasion in parts of Miami (especially little Haiti - where they use the Giant Snails as part of ritual ceremonies).

FWIW - I'm with you. If I wanted to live on or near a farm - or do things that are appropriate for a farm - I'd live in an area that is zoned for farming. Robyn

A hipster???? What century or generation is that from <rolling eyes>? See - that is what I mean about JAX. People are just so totally detached from anything resembling anything that is contemporary. You're about 30 years younger than I am - and you talk like an aging 70 year old hippie.

Note that I don't have any problems with gardening. Just raising farm animals in residential urban/non-rural areas. BTW - what's in your garden? I have a tough time growing anything to cook with other than herbs (just the nature of my land) - but I grow an awful lot of them. My garden is also very conducive to bees and butterflies and birds (the surrounding wooded acreage doesn't hurt either).

BTW - I doubt you know much of anything about slow food. And - if you do - tell me your favorite restaurants - the places you've dined at - that can be counted in that part of the current food scene (on a local - national and/or international basis). That go beyond Mayport Shrimp. FWIW - you can't lump organic - locavore - and slow food all together on a consistent basis when it comes to restaurants. And here - in the SE - where we have long periods of time without much in the way of local stuff (think of what you can grow here during the heat of summer) - it is perhaps wiser - if you run a restaurant - simply to try and produce good eats 100% of the year (an aspirational goal for most places in this metro area regardless of the style of their cuisine).
