Do you have your tickets yet for Seattle Tilth’s Chicken Coop and Urban Farm Tour? You won’t have to travel too far this year to see a few of them, with a stop each in Maple Leaf and Meadowbrook, and two in Ravenna. But with more than 50 families ranging from Everett to Duvall opening up their homes for the annual tour, you might be missing out if you stick with just Northeast Seattle.
Our resident gardening blogger, Stacy Brewer of Seattle Seedling fame, has previously had her chicken coop featured in the tour (and in the Seattle Weekly!), so it’s no surprise the tour is returning to our chicken-friendly neighborhood.
What is the Chicken Coop and Urban Farm Tour? From Seattle Tilth’s website:
This is your chance to visit folks who are keeping chickens and creating “urban farms” right here in the city of Seattle and in the surrounding area.
In this self-guided tour to dozens of sites, you will see simple chicken coops built in an afternoon and elaborate set-ups that took weeks of planning and building. See exactly how chickens, goats, ducks and honey bees live together with people in an urban environment.
The tour is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 14. Tickets cost $12 (plus discounts for groups/families, bicyclists, youths and Seattle Tilth members) and are available at Brown Paper Tickets.Tweet
