From Sammy Slade:
"We, the Carrboro Greenspace collective, are very sorry that some people have been upset by the inclusion of the Chicken processing skillshare as part of the Urban Farm Tour. We didn't anticipate the controversy it would cause. Our reasoning was that if we are serious about creating a sustainable food system, animal processing must be a part of the discussion. We do sincerely appreciate your very real concerns and the willingness to engage in this conversation. We feel continuing this conversation is absolutely crucial for our long term efforts in creating a sustainable small-scale food system which is what the Urban Farm Tour is about. As such, instead of the original skillshare we are inviting the community to participate in an honest and respectful discussion starting at 3:30pm at 'The Bog' (Pleasant Street and Crest Street in Carrboro)."
