Hey folks. I'm glad to see some action on here. I am certain that most of us are serious as serious can be about getting chickens in Lakewood. Though I do want chickens now, I feel it's advisable that we all move forward slowly this time.
What I'd like everybody to do is focus on those three-tiers: Businesses, Organizations, and Citizens.
Now what I mean by that, is that we all as individuals can all rally up the troops. For example, does anybody frequent a restaurant/bar and perhaps knows the owner well enough to get that restaurant/bar on board. Or is anybody part of the Lakewood Kiwanis/any church group/or other professional organization? It would be great to have a diverse depth to our cause. And if you don't know any business owners or organizational groups, we can all talk to our friends and neighbors. Eventually, I want to get all these folks on a petition of sorts and go from there.
In positive news, Melt Bar and Grilled is formally on board as of last week.
In the meantime, I am all for meeting up, but my time is scarce right now with spring planting and the weather dictating my life.
Be in touch and keep communicating.
Justin, have you tried to reach Lakewood Leaf? I bet that they would get on board.
How about anyone from Bay Branch Farm in Lakewood? They would be good too.
Well thought :)
Pete, I am up for coffee and idea exchange if you have any time on Sun or early Sat available. Anyone else in?
Count me in. I am free Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Let me throw out Panera's at the corner of St. Charles and Detroit as a possible meeting spot. They have a quiet area in the back that can seat 6-8 people and have free parking in the back.
I can do either Early Sat or anytime Sun. Panera sounds great. Anyone else in?
3 of us so far. I also posted invites on Lakewood LEAF, Bay Branch Farms, and Local Food Cleveland's Facebook pages.
