Tour FAQ

When is the 2017 Tour D’Coop?
The next Tour D’Coop is May 20, 2017. On the tour day, coops are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.

Is it possible to receive a map before the day of the tour so I can prepare my itinerary?
Yes, a map with the general coop locations for the 2017 tour is available now. Also, each coop will have a description and some photos to help you decide which coops to visit. On the morning of the tour, online ticket holders will receive an email with the exact addresses of each coop. If you do not purchase tickets online, you can get a ticket with coop descriptions & addresses by going to one of our ticket locations and making a donation on the day of the tour.

Do I need to get tickets for each person in my group?
Your group only needs one tour ticket! One ticket per individual or group gets you into all the yards and a wonderful family experience.

How much does the Tour cost?
Please give accordingly to your group size to benefit Urban Ministries of Wake County. We’ve made suggestions for donation amounts in the form above, but also included an “Other” option if you would like to give more.

Where does the Tour begin?
It’s a self-guided tour, so you can start the tour at any of the coops. Keep in mind that you will not have time to visit each coop so plan ahead by reviewing the coop descriptions online.

How long does the tour last?
Coops will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 20. Depending on the locations of the coops you decide to visit, it’s probably realistic to visit 2 or 3 coops per hour – just depends on how long you stay at each coop.
