I would be surprised if you are not surprised by the interest in farming you will find in Silicon Valley of all places. This Saturday in fact is the 2018 Tour de Coop down there in the digital eden, a self-guided introduction to outstanding local chicken coops, gardens, bee hives and hoops houses. Expect about 30 sites to participate and prepare to learn more than you ever imagined on subjects like the care and feeding of poultry and laws governing the cultivation of bees. Hours are from 9 to 4. The event is sponsored by Slow Food South Bay. It’s free but you should definitely RESVP.
