The Edible Schoolyard

Empowering kids and families to create new food futures through food education.


The second annual Greensboro Urban Coop Loop will take place on June 7, 2014. Approximately twelve coops will be selected to participate in a ‘tour of chicken homes’ throughout the City. The committee is looking for chicken owners within the city limits of Greensboro with unique coops, unusual chicken breeds, gardens, or those who can demonstrate other urban homesteading practices. Coops will be selected by committee based on location, uniqueness, and compatibility with other coops. The deadline to nominate your coop is Friday, February 28, 2014. If you have questions about this application, please email or call 336.574.2898. Proceeds from this event go to benefit The Edible Schoolyard at the Greensboro Children's Museum.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You must be available to have your coop open to the public and manned on Saturday June 7th, 2014 from 10am to 4pm.

DIY Coop Plans

Last Saturday, The Edible Schoolyard hosted the first ever Greensboro Urban Coop Loop.  We had a blast and LOVED hearing from all the folks in Greensboro who have backyard chickens.  Joe and his wife Laurie sent us pictures and plans for their fabulous coop.  Enjoy!
