Do you want to see amazing edible gardens and backyard chicken coops in Santa Fe? Volunteer for the Kitchen Garden & Coop Tour on Sunday, July 24th. We are hosting this with Edible Santa Fe as a fundraising event. Tickets are on sale at Brown Paper Tickets for $35. The tour will include water catchment, permaculture, heated raised beds, unique vegetables, fruit & nut trees, herbs, chicken coops, hand-painted beehives and a barn with goats. Here are photos of two locations on the tour.
We need volunteers for the morning, afternoon or all day. Here are some opportunities to be involved:
July 22 afternoon to pick-up tables
July 24 early morning to assist with posting signs before tour
July 24 morning from 8am to 12pm at one of the tour locations
July 24 afternoon from 11am to 3pm at one of the tour locations
July 24 all day from 8am to 3pm at one of the tour locations
July 25 morning to return tables
Volunteer activities will include assisting the homeowner at tour sites, directing parking, ticket taking, answering questions and posting event signs. There is a required 1 hour training on July 16 or 17. You don’t need to be a garden or chicken expert to volunteer! Most of the questions and activities will be around the event.
Home Grown New Mexico also has monthly events, computer work and other ways to help. Visit our Kitchen Garden & Coop Tour page for more details or contact Amy at 473-1403 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
