Egg Recall Boosts Urban Farming Movement

The recent recall of eggs has put urban farmers on the map, again.

As sad as it is that so many people have become sick from eating tainted, mass produced eggs, we are faced with another painful reminder to be careful about how we select what we put into our mouths.

Check out the Urban Chickens Network Blog under Our Favorite Blogs, and read the article, "Happiness is Knowing Where Your Eggs Come From." And be sure to click on the accompanying links that educate you on the safe handling as well as cleaning of eggs. I learned a lot from these articles!

Please support your local food movement by planting a garden, patronizing Farmers' Markets and maybe even raising a few chickens! Your tummy will thank you.
