Urban Coop Tour
6th Annual Urban Coop Tour
Saturday and Sunday October 5th and 6th, 2013
12 noon - 5 p.m., rain or shine

Hosted by the Wylde Center, the 6th annual Urban Coop Tour is a self-guided tour held each fall. From chicken McMansions to jewel box coops in tiny spaces, the Tour highlights the variety of ways urban residents are raising their chickens, how they are incorporated into city lots, and the benefits of having a backyard flock. The coops are often living works of art, situated in organic gardens as part of wider sustainability and permaculture efforts.

Backyard chickens are popping up across intown Atlanta neighborhoods, with families, community gardens and neighborhood co-ops getting in on the action. The dual benefits of farm fresh eggs and reclaiming ownership of the food chain have inspired hundreds of people to get involved. You can't get any more local than walking outside to gather your own eggs.and the chickens are pretty cute, too!

Tour is open to those wanting to add chickens to their homestead, those who currently have chickens, or those who are just curious.  Tour is family friendly and highlights some of Atlanta's funkiest neighborhoods: Decatur, Lake Clare, Historic Fourth Ward, East Atlanta, Virginia-Highlands, and Grant Park.  Coop owners will guide the tours and discuss their chicken-raising experiences. If you are thinking about keeping chickens in your own backyard, you'll get some great ideas.

Tickets (good both days plus the Launch Party on October 4) are $25 day of the tour, $20 in advance.
