We hope to see you Saturday, July 10th, on Seattle Tilth’s City Coop Tour. The Tangled Nest coop is one of nearly fifty coops throughout the city open for touring, chicken-visiting, question-asking, community-building, and overall inspiration. Seattle has become a world-class city for backyard chickens and other urban livestock. On the tour, you’ll see every kind of coop imaginable–from simple toss-ups, to architect-designed marvels. This year’s tour also includes homes that have brought ducks, bees, and goats into the round of urban life.
The map for the tour is available all over Seattle–see the Seattle Tilth Coop Tour page for details. Maps are $30 for a family, or carload/cycling group of 4. Proceeds benefit Tilth–one of our favorite local nonprofits.
Are you a West Seattle-ite looking to stay in the ‘hood? For just $15 you can get a map to both the local edible garden tour, and the West Seattle section of the Coop tour. You’ll be supporting another of our favorite groups: Glean It/Community Harvest. See their website for details.
Join the tour! Come see us! We’ll have a big plate of cookies going, and we’d love to meet you and talk chicken as we join together in finding new, creative, delightful ways to participate in our food lives and the cycles of nature from our urban homes.
