So, when is the next local Tour de Coop?

We've had a few folks ask about a 2013 Tour de Coop. The answer is, we are skipping this year and plan to reschedule the TDC for spring of 2014. It's lots of work and the core group of organizers have too much on our plates this year to take on the many moving parts in coordinating the event.

We hope to return in 2014 with something bigger, or at least better. Possibly Mother's Day to coincide with the whole ovulation stay tuned! In the meantime, you can help us generate funds in advance of next year's event by purchasing from our stock of collectible TDC shirts from the past three years: the 2010 Chicken Head, 2011 Chicken Bike, and last year's fabulous Henzilla: Rise of the Chickens (Bucky Buckaw called this 'the best chicken shirt ever,' or something. It's a honey. Shirts may be purchased at Hollywood Market Yoga  - 208-391-4878 (GURU)

In the meantime, check out our ambitious neighbors to the south at Wasatch Gardens (formerly Wasatch Fish and Gardens). What used to be known as 'Chicken Week,' is being revised and expanded to Urban Garden and Farm Week / make-raise-grow and will take place in Salt Lake City June 16th to June 22nd. Some amazing events and activities are planned, so consider a road trip to see how they do things in the Beehave State.
