At the Tour D’Coop we love to talk about chickens, chicken keeping and the joys of urban farming. We have coop owners and hens available for interviews and group members who are able to speak on chicken-keeping, urban farming and eating locally-raised foods. We have high and low-res photographs available for publication. We’d love to help you discuss this grass-roots event and the urban farming social movement on your television show, on your website, or in your publication.

For more information please contact us.
