We’re hosting our 2nd annual San Antonio Chicken Walk coop tour, April 13, 2019. The self-guided tour will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Olmos Basin Farmers Market, where you can pick up a map and passport. Then proceed to the coops on the tour in any order. Coops will be available for view from 10 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Then join us at Pittman-Sullivan Community Garden, 1111 Dakota St.,  for a party with food, music, and door prizes.

Last year’s inaugural coop tour highlighted our 2017 changes to the livestock ordinance, in which the number of chickens allowed without a permit was raised from 3 to 8. FPCSA worked with Animal Care Services and the San Antonio Backyard Chickens Facebook Group to improve the ordinance. Here’s a recent item from KENS-5 TV, helping us recruit coop owners for the tour.

Registration will open soon on our website. If you’re on our coop tour mailing list from last year, you’ll get a notice when it opens. You can preregister and get your coop tour and passport ahead of time, to plan your route. If you’d like to join that mailing list, send a request to info@foodpolicysa.org. Hope to see you on the tour!
