About our speaker:

While Lisa has kept backyard flocks of poultry since her college days in a co-housing community, she did not become a serious student of poultry breeding and genetics until she retired and began raising purebred chickens. Lisa quickly became interested in preservation of heritage breeds, and realized that these original homestead birds were at risk unless they became more integral to a healthy food system. Her desire to provide families with an alternative local supply for healthy, productive chickens led to her interest in helping form Peninsula Poultry Breeders. Lisa's formal background is in biological and behavioral sciences and her varied career includes stints as a wildlife biologist, high school biology teacher, and public affairs director for a large municipal agency.
