 It seems like everywhere you look these days folks are growing gardens, raising chickens, or keeping bees in the city. Backyard farming is becoming common in the cities, and for good reason. With the price of food rising, household budgets shrinking, and concerns over food safety, many city dwellers are choosing to grow food in their backyards. Christine Faith, from our local Ivywild Farms, will talk about what comprises a typical backyard farm, what is legal inside the city of Colorado Springs and what is not, and the basics to get started.
