Seattle is a national hot spot for chicken coops and urban farms! This is your chance to visit folks who are keeping chickens and creating unique and inspiring urban farms.
On Saturday, Aug. 18, glean great ideas from creative neighbors who are incorporating animals and gardens into their home landscapes. In this self-guided tour, you will see simple chicken coops built in an afternoon and elaborate finely-crafted coops that took weeks of planning and building.
See what's needed for keeping miniature goats, ducks, mason bees, honey bees and rabbits. There are sites all around Seattle. Enjoy a unique and inspiring urban adventure!
