Raising Chickens a Time Honored Tradition, Says Dr. Brinkmann

Long Island Herald

Dr. Robert Brinkmann, director of Sustainability Studies, was interviewed by the Long Island Herald for a story about a village trustee in Valley Stream, Long Island, who is trying to streamline the process for getting permits that would allow residents to get permits to keep chickens, which he says would help them learn more about nature and sustainability. Dr. Brinkmann agrees: ” …It teaches people about the connection between the planet and food,” he said. “It’s often a thing that parents want to do with their children to teach them about nature, to teach them about food production, to teach them about animals and environmental effects.”
