Tour de Cluck is more than cycling

From page A5 | May 14, 2014 |

While most people think bike ride when they hear Tour de Cluck, the event is much more of a monthlong celebration of all things outdoors — but still heavy on the chicken.

Additional events on Saturday, May 24, include:

* 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.: “A Farm to School Stroll in the Country” at FARM 2.6, 25450 County Road 95 opposite the Yolo County Airport, with Robyn Waxman.

FARM 2.6 is a working farm and part of a nonprofit network of free farms that build community through sustainable farming of public and private space, assist low-income and homeless populations, and integrate local food into mainstream culture and education.

Hundreds of farmers work year-round to provide thousands of pounds of eggs, vegetables and fruit each year to Davis Community Meals and César Chávez Plaza — nonprofit organizations that serve low-income and homeless populations in Davis. They also offer second-grade farm tours though Yolo Farm to Fork’s Davis Farm to School Program.

Visitors will enjoy 30-minute tours of the farm at the beginning or the end of the Tour de Cluck coop loops.

* 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.: “Chickens + Feed = Eggs + Manure!” at Central Park Gardens by UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners.

Learn how composted chicken manure can make a great fertilizer. Receive step-by-step instructions on how to compost chicken manure to benefit your garden.

Central Park Gardens are managed and tended by community volunteers to demonstrate sustainable gardening practices to home gardeners.

* 9 to 11 a.m. Live chicken exhibit and plant sale in the Central Park Gardens, Third and B streets.
