NEWS: Zak Shusterman quoted for backyard chicken advocacy

Post placeholder image

Zak Shusterman was quoted in a feature article in the Lewisboro Ledger headlined, Katonah residents raise uproar over backyard chickens by Reece Alvarez. His efforts in support of backyard chicken raising were previously mentioned here. Reece describes Zak’s presentation as “shining a wider light on the issue”.

The article does a good job of covering the issues raised, both the concerns of local neighbors and arguments in support of Pauline Schneider, the Katonah resident whose chickens are at the heart of the debate. For clarification, Katonah lies in Westchester County, north of New York City. It is a hamlet within the Town limits of Bedford and therefore subject to the jurisdiction of Bedford’s town code and its Zoning Board of Appeal.

Zak will continue to support the backyard chicken raising and beekeeping movement, as part of his work with small farmers and organizing addressing food health, food justice, and food security.

Feel free to contact Zak to discuss these or similar issues.
