- ‘Express your chicken-ness was designed by Mia Solomon.
“Chickens are such permaculture creatures: they produce no waste that isn’t also a resource, they give various yields (including entertainment), and they integrate so well into our lives. They are all individuals and yet they make the most of their chicken community. We can learn a lot from chickens!“
This image comes from the A Patch from Scratch children’s picture book that Megan wrote and illustrated as her family transformed their backyard into a wonderful permaculture paradise.
“I wanted to share our journey and encourage other families to join us in this celebration of nature, permaculture, the joys of harvesting your own produce, reducing waste, and the gentle home-grown family activism of caring for the earth one small urban backyard at a time. Because you care for what you love.”
‘People, Planet, Permaculture, April Samson-Kelly
April heartily embraces the concept of ‘art as activism’ as one those strategies that suits her nature and her environment.
“When I can inspire a child to ask ‘do chickens think?, then I know I have seeded a whole new way of looking at the world, our part in it, and what one person can do.”
