"Tour some of Greensboro’s finest chicken coops and urban homesteads. The Greensboro Urban Coop Loop is a self- guided tour that takes you into the backyards of chicken coops across town. Knowledgeable chicken owners will be on hand to answer questions and introduce you to the joys of raising chickens.
Proceeds from the event will go to The Edible Schoolyard at The Greensboro Children’s Museum, a local nonprofit that empowers kids and families to cultivate healthy communities through food education and features its own coop and heritage breed hens. There is a minimum donation of $10 per family or car load.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.GreensboroUrbanCoopLoop.com
Tickets will also be available on the day of the event, Saturday, June 7th at The Greensboro Children’s Museum. Participants can pick up maps after 9:30am that morning with a copy of their ticket or receipt at one of two locations: the Greensboro Children’s Museum located at 200 N Church Street or Summerfield Farms. The Coop Loop will be held rain or shine and loop goers are asked to leave their dogs and other pets at home.
Many thanks to the following sponsors of the 2nd Annual Greensboro Urban Coop Loop: Reedy Fork Organic Feed Farm, Summerfield Farms, Well Spring, The Fresh Market, The Greensboro Farmers Curb Market, and Kotis Properties.
