We have organized an eclectic tour of six residential chicken coops in the Dallas area on Saturday, May 1st. The tour will begin in a central parking location (If you are going on the Tour, plan to meet at the parking lot at at 9 am. We will gather in the northeast corner of the parking lot. If you have any problems locating the group contact Jim Shade on his mobile phone, . ) so we can car pool to the coops. We'll be all over town before the day is over... Oak Cliff, Preston Hollow, Lakewood, Henderson and Richardson. Click here to see the coop map. We'll break up the day with lunch (included)at Smoke at the Belmont Hotel in Oak Cliff.
Forget your preconceived notions about to who raises chickens in Dallas... we'll be visiting coops by a prominent modernist architect, an acclaimed local photographer, a community activist, 2 of Dallas' favorite landscape designers, and an urban mom who sells eggs. Each coop is uniquely conceived. Their owners will join us to discuss each one and answer all your chicken-and-egg questions. It will be a great tour.
This tour is limited to the first 6 dozen participants (that's egg math for 72) who sign up.
The fee for this event includes lunch at Smoke:
$35 for member
$40 for non-members
No RSVP will be considered final unless it matches a Brown Paper Ticket sale.
