Calling all Coops! I wanted to be sure everyone in the Phoenix area was aware of this years Tour de Coops 2010 sponsored by the Phoenix Permaculture Guild. Tour de Coops is currently looking for volunteers who are willing to open their yards up for the tour. This is your chance to show off your coop and your chickens to other like-minded poultry lovers or even to those who may simply be interested in getting started. The event takes place on December 4th, 2010. What is Tour de Coops? Phoenix Tour de Coops was organized by the Phoenix Permaculture Guild in response to the burgeoning interest in urban livestock and rapidly-increasing attendance in their backyard chicken-raising classes. Tour de Coops is a self-guided tour designed to give visitors insight into the experience of raising urban chickens, ducks, and quail, while inspiring them to start their own backyard coops. To register your own coop go to www.TourdeCoops.org or www.phoenixpermacultureguild.com. But hurry, registration ends soon!
