In these times of precarious economy and an increased desire to be free of corporate control, the simple act of mapping where people are raising chickens and have spare eggs to share is a powerful tool to connect and strengthen community

Thanks Paul for posting the link to your article on shareable.net. Great concept and I wonder if it has been tried somewhere in the US. Read and noted.

If you say so, but I'm not convinced it's useful. Locals usually know where they can find fresh eggs direct from the chicken, so to speak.

Wow this is cool. As long as the feds don't try to control and restrict it.

Amazing to me that we have to waste energy on the internet to find eggs that most people know about anyway. I thought this might be helpful to city people but they seldom venture into the country anyway. If they did, then they would see the eggs signs and know.
