Tu B’Shevat: Netiya sows seeds of social justice

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/cover_story/article/netiya_sows_seeds_of_social_justice

From the front, Devorah Brous’ modest San Fernando Valley home looks much like all the others around it. But go into the backyard, and it’s a different story. There you’ll find an urban farm, where Brous’ 2-year-old daughter, Sela, is holding a meek but healthy black-and-white speckled hen named Bella. Four other hens, all named and of various colors, run freely around the yard — when they aren’t laying brown eggs in their roomy chicken coop.
