The animals are part of a sustainable farming project the convention center's food vendor has run since April 2014, spokesperson Dave Johnson said.
 
 
From backyard homesteading and community gardening to market farming, urban communities across the United States have witnessed a recent surge of agricultural activity that contributes to more dynamic cities where cohesive neighborhoods, innovative entrepreneurship, and a healthy environment can coexist. Rust belt cities like Cleveland, Detroit, Youngstown, and Milwaukee share a history of deindustrialization that led to job loss and economic decline. Additionally, freeway construction and exclusionary zoning policies attracted higher-income residents to the suburbs. Depopulation and poverty concentration in urban cores led grocery stores to close, creating zones described as “food deserts”-- areas without full-service grocers that tend to be dominated by fast food restaurants, corner stores, and gas stations.1 Lack of access to fresh, affordable, culturally appropriate foods creates increased risk for obesity, diabetes, malnutrition, and heart disease -- risks borne disproportionately by communities of color.2
 
What long-term role can urban agriculture play in the emergence of healthier and more resilient cities? Does urban agriculture offer a “holding strategy” until vacant land can be more profitably redeveloped or does it contribute value to a city beyond increased tax base? We find that agriculture provides a durable feature of urban environments by fostering diverse community collaborations, connections to cultural food traditions, employment, ecological services, and renewed civic activity. In Cleveland, urban agriculture has proven durable during both boom and bust periods, adapting to address a range of needs regardless of population size or economic output.

I think Trump should support a more self sustainable society for all Americans. We need to rely on ourselves more and tell the government to keep their rules and policies out of our business'.

Watch The Donald Trump Sketch That Was Mysteriously Deleted From 2004 SNL Episode
 
But the sketch has been deleted from the official SNL DVD - giving rise to all sorts of conspiracy theories.
 
"Somebody doesn't want you to see this sketch,” writes mediaite.com.
 
In the skit, Trump was dressed in white suit and yellow tie and he was surrounded by 2004 cast members Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Seth Meyers, and Kenan Thompson.
