Henside the Beltline Tour de Coop is a one-day garden tour that seeks to educate visitors about keeping hens in an urban environment. Learn the how-tos of chicken keeping, meet the chickens and see a wide variety of coop styles. 100% of the tour proceeds benefit Urban Ministries of Wake County, a non-profit organization that provides essential food and medical services to close to 20,000 Triangle residents annually. The 2010 Tour collected 2000 pounds of food and raised $5,300 for Urban Ministries. http://www.urbanmin.org/.
