The Wylde Center’s Urban Coop Tour is returning, and tickets are now on sale.
The 8th annual tour kicks off with a launch party on Friday, March 27 and continues with tours March 28-29. The event features 13 urban chicken coops across Decatur, East Atlanta, Edgewood, Grant Park, and the Old Fourth Ward.
Owners of the chicken coops will be answering questions about their chickens and coop designs. The Wylde Center says some coops also have artwork, edible landscaping, and additional livestock like rabbits, goats, and a pot-bellied big.
The description of the tour explains, “Urban coops are a fast growing trend in metro Atlanta neighborhoods, with families, community gardens and neighborhood co-ops all getting in on the action. Benefits include farm fresh eggs, kitchen waste disposal, bug patrol and just plain fun!”
Tickets are good for both days of the tour and include the Friday night launch party. They cost $20 if you get them early; otherwise they are $25. Kids under age 12 are free.
