The cock has crowed: Growing Gardens
has just sent out the call for hosts for the 2009 Tour de Coops
, where you can let other excited Portlanders pick (ha!) your brain about urban chicken coop design and other fowl play (ha ha!).
Terrible puns aside...given the DIY aesthetic of this town, I am excited to see whatever magnificent castles Portlanders have put up for their urban-friendly fowl. The Tour de Coops will be held on Saturday, July 25. All potential coop participants must be available at their home from 11 am to 3 pm on that day, as well as available for a coop orientation on Tuesday, July 14 at 6:30 pm.
For consideration, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Michelle Cushing at 828-2959. Don't forget to include your full name, address, phone number and email, as well as a coop description and photo.
