City Chickens Coop Tour

Update: Tickets for this event are SOLD OUT! Thanks for all the interest in this event. Over 200 tickets were sold raising over $1,000 for the Community Food Bank.

Curious about what it would take to raise chickens in the city? Have a hankering for fresh local eggs in the morning? Wish you could take advantage of some of the benefits of country living right here in town?

Or maybe you just like chickens…

Join us for the City Chickens Coop Tour, a self-guided tour of backyard chicken coops around Tucson. Take a peak at backyards all over town for creative coop ideas and a chance to talk chicken with owners and other poultry enthusiasts. Plus, you’ll get a chance to see other backyard sustainability practices in place — like cisterns, desert gardens, rain water harvesting basins, solar ovens and more.

Tickets for the tour are $5. Ticket purchase gets you a map with directions to each participating home on the tour. All $5 from each ticket purchase will be donated to the Community Food Bank’s Community Foods Consignment Program.

Starting May 4th, tickets for the tour will be available at Food Conspiracy Co-op, the Tucson CSA, the Community Food Bank, and the Community Food Bank’s market stands at farmers markets around town.
