Growing Garden‘s 8th annual Tour De Coops takes place Saturday, July 16, 2011 from 10am to 3pm.
What, you might be asking, is a tour de coops?
This is a fun and affordable community event for you, your whole family and all your friends! Chicken owners throughout Portland will open their yards so you can see their coops and meet their chickens.
The Tour de Coops is a self-guided tour; you’ll have the opportunity to visit 22 backyard chicken coops all over East Portland – getting to know your neighbors while learning and sharing urban chicken keeping ideas.
Purchase a tour booklet (which serves as your ticket) at Garden Fever (3433 NE 24th), Urban Farm Store (2100 SE Belmont), or People’s Coop (3029 SE 21st) from July 8-16 for a mere $15. Visit the Growing Gardens website for more information, including how to enter the raffle to win a coop made by The Garden Coop!
