ABOUT OUR TOUR
Founded in 2009, the Funky Chicken Coop Tour® is an annual self-guided tour held each spring on Easter weekend in Austin, Texas. The purpose of this tour is to encourage city residents to raise chickens and other poultry at home by demonstrating the many ways that poultry housing can be effectively incorporated into an urban residence. Get more info at: http://AustinCoopTour.org.
Show us how you envision our Tour in your artwork!
The purpose of this artwork is for the 2014 Funky Chicken Coop Tour and will be used on the 2014 t-shirt, other Tour merchandise, and promotional materials. We see our tour as a gateway into living and growing local. Year after year, the backyards with chicken coops also have gardens, rainwater collection, solar energy, and other sustainable elements. It is a bigger picture than just “raising chickens”, although urban backyard poultry are obviously a key element of our tour.
Further, we believe in “paying it forward”. We annually give a portion of our net profits to local community organizations that support and promote local food and sustainability. Past recipients have included local non-profits and education, including The Sustainable Food Center, Green Corn Project, Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms, and Partners in Education, Agriculture, and Sustainability (PEAS) at Cunningham Elementary.
