Thanks to you, Tour d' Coop 2016 raised more than $26,000 for our friends in need and was widely attended by more than 1,000 people!

Tour D’Coop began in 2005 as a way for a few neighbors to show off their hens and coops, while highlighting the benefits of urban farming and backyard poultry. Today, Tour d’Coop has grown into a one-day garden tour that encompasses more than 20 coops and attracts hundreds of visitors.

Highlights of this family-friendly event include:

  • Super Sites featuring food trucks, animal demonstrations, and live music from around the Triangle
  • A self-guided eco-friendly bike route through downtown Raleigh coop sites
  • A Hive Hike, which showcases homes with active bee hives for tour attendees
  • A designer coop raffle offering the chance to win your very own coop!
  • Sponsor Tour D'Coop 2017
