If you’re thinking about raising hens but you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got you covered. The Food Conspiracy Co-op’s 7th Annual Chicken Coop Tour is a great way to get inspired and informed. See a wide variety of coop styles and sizes. Talk to backyard chicken keepers. Learn how to raise chicks.
The tour will be held on Saturday, December 6th from 10:00 – 3:00 p.m. It is a self-guided tour designed to introduce people to the joys (and challenges) of urban chicken keeping. Tickets cost $5 and will be available for purchase up until the day of the tour while supplies last. (We’ll cap the sale of tickets at 300, so as not to overwhelm coop owners.
HOW IT WORKS
Purchase your tickets at the store or online and get added to a list of participants.
Ticket holders are notified by email and sent an information packet that includes a map all participating coops and descriptions of coops, breeds and other features. Participants who prefer can pick up their packet at the store.
On Saturday, December 6th, between 10 am and 3pm, ticket holders may visit as many of the chicken coops on the tour as they wish—there is no set route and it is completely self-guided. Each ticket holder is free to choose the participating coops to visit and amount of time to spend at each.
At each participating coop there will be at least one person available throughout the tour to answer questions about their chickens and coops. Many of the tour stops have other sustainable features like rainwater harvesting, permaculture design, greywater systems, bee keeping hives, desert gardens and composting toilets and they’ll be happy to talk about too.
Proceeds from coop tour ticket sales will benefit the Food Conspiracy Co-op’s educational programs. This year in conjunction with the coop tour, we are hosting the first chicken keeping class at the Co-op. For more information about this basics class visit “Building Your Brood.”
