The inaugural uptown tour of chicken coops in downtown Vancouver neighborhoods, organized by community members that believe in the positive impact local sustainable food sources have on our health, community, and environment, is an opportunity for participants to gain valuable insight and inspiration from experienced coop owners.
The first ever self-guided tour of urban poultry coops in the downtown Vancouver area is set to kick off Saturday afternoon on the 17th of July from 12 to 4 p.m.
This is a fun and affordable event for you, your family and all your friends! This tour enables you the flexibility to determine your own route as you get to know your neighbors and peck their brains on raising urban fowl.
The $10 tickets are on sale at Mint Tea (2014 Main St) and Arnada Naturals (1705 Broadway). A map of coop locations and wristband passes will be available for pickup the day of the event at ticket locations. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Hough Foundation.
