When it comes to the chicken and the egg, it’s not about who goes first -- it’s about who goes in the middle. The Valley Permaculture Alliance’s Tour de Coops and Sustainability Festival is a showcase of the some of the most sustainable homes in Phoenix, offering everything from homegrown produce and backyard livestock to custom-made coops.

This self-guided tour of DIY living will give visitors a chance to meet urban farmers as well as learn the basics and benefits of raising chickens in a modern environment. In addition to the tour, there will be free sustainability classes, chicken dance and coop design contests, food trucks, live music, raffles, and more.
