RALEIGH’S URBAN FARMERS SHOW OFF THEIR HEN HOUSES
The Henside the Beltline Tour de Coop returns for a sixth year. Saturday May 21st 10:00 - 4:00
Henside the Beltline Tour de Coop is a one-day garden tour that seeks to educate visitors about keeping hens in an urban environment. Coop owners are on hand at each location to discuss the how-tos of chicken keeping and there are opportunities for photographing and getting to know the chickens. The wide variety of coop styles as well as the surrounding back yard gardens make the tour interesting for the whole family but please leave pets at home, since some flocks are not accustomed to four-legged visitors.
