Once again GardenSphere will be hosting the Tacoma Urban Coop Tour. This fun, family friendly event has become an annual tradition in the Tacoma area.
We are still working out the details of the event and are currently seeking applications for tour hosts. We are inviting hosts from our past two years to also apply. If you would like to show off your coop, have an interesting design to show or just want to participate in this fun event now is your chance. We have also changed the date of the event. We wanted a better chance of sunshine so the tour will now be July 13th.
Have you been thinking of keeping urban chickens? Are you wondering where to start? Then this is the tour for you. This is even for those of you that already have backyard chickens and are thinking about changing your coop design (or just want to scope out the neighbor’s coop). Learn about raising chickens from those in the know. Here is the down and dirty:
When: Saturday, July 13, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: In the Tacoma city limits. **Carpooling or other green alternatives is recommended**
Why: Coop design ideas and community fellowship
Details on tickets will be forthcoming. If you would like to be a tour host please fill out the application and return it to the shop. Applications must be submitted by April 1, 2013. All selected hosts and “wranglers” are asked to attend a mandatory information meeting at 10:30 a.m. on June 15th.
