Natural Awakenings Metro Phoenix & Northern Arizona

Tour De Coops is a Home Tour Like No Other

Oct 01, 2014 07:32PM

Valley Permaculture Alliance’s sixth annual self-guided fundraising tour of the Valley’s most unique and funky chicken coops will be held November 8 throughout the metro Phoenix area. Coop “tourists” can drive and walk to the locations or take a guided bicycle tour.

As many as 25 chicken coops will be on the tour, representing a range of designs, chicken-keeping secrets, responsible ownership and sustainable practices and solid examples of creative living in the Valley and urban desert Southwest. Chickens are a critical component in the effort for people to grow their own food sustainably through a closed-loop system where nothing goes to waste.

Adult tickets are $20 in advance and $30 the day of the event. Tickets for youth 11 to 15 years are $10 and children under 10 accompanied by an adult ticket holder are free. For more information, visit vpaaz.org.
