  • Young Kwak

The owners of Heron Pond Farms, where these goats produce milk for cheese, are members of the region's current local food economy. If the Spokane City Council passes a set of urban agriculture changes Monday, that local group could quickly expand. The pair of ordinances, being introduced by Council President Ben Stuckart, would allow city residents to keep chickens and small breeds of pigs and goats in their backyards. The changes also would allow residents to sell produce from their gardens. The council is set to vote at its 6 pm meeting Monday. Read more about the potential changes here.
