Well tomorrow is the big day at Double S Farms. It is the second annual Tour de Coops and the first time that Double S Farms will be on the list of gardens and chicken coops to visit.
I do plan on being at Double S Farms for a good part of the day tomorrow (Saturday). Double S Farms is in Gilbert. I’m not sure how many stops will be included in Gilbert since Tour de Coops includes the Phoenix metro area, but I hope some of you who live nearby are able to visit and see not only the chickens and their coop, but the vegetable garden, the fruit trees and the newest addition, the barn shed.
My sister, Chicken Farmer, blogged about it a few days ago and here is her post which explains much more about it:
A couple of months ago, the Phoenix Permaculture Guild put out a “call for coops” to be on this year’s tour. We were all over that and quickly submitted our detailed application. Once they looked over our application, they sent someone over to check out our coop to ensure that it was seriously cool (and it totally is). They agreed and this year our cool little coop (as well as our chickens, gardens, trees, etc.) will be on display for this year’s tour. You all know how much I like to talk about my chickens and now I get to do it for an entire day – with a captive audience! Absolute heaven for me.
If you are in the Phoenix area and have any sort of interest in urban poultry or even urban gardening, I highly recommend this tour. It’s a blast and a great way to connect with like minded people.
