Tour de Coops
Jul 31, 2011 08:02PM
Andrew Brake of Nap Town Chickens will supervise a self-guided tour of 12 separate chicken shacks in the Broad Ripple, Meridian-Kessler, Rocky Ripple and Butler-Tarkington neighborhoods from 2 to 5 p.m. on September 18. Participants, whether area residents or tourists, are strongly encouraged to walk or ride a bike and bicycle parking will be provided through the nonprofit group Pedal & Park.
Maps of the tour, with suggested bike, walking or vehicle routes, can be obtained by registering at the event at Broad Ripple Park’s south parking lot (near the park) beginning at 1p.m. Folks will be welcome to drive their cars to the park and then hop on their bikes from there. All event proceeds will benefit Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and IndyCog, a local bicycle advocacy group.
For those who wish to learn about raising backyard chickens and creating their own coop, Brake teaches classes at IUPUI’s Community Learning Network.
