Feathers and Fiber Coop Tour
Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood Drive, will be the starting point for the first annual Feathers and Fiber Coop Tour on September 24th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The event will be a benefit for the Roeland Park Food Pantry. Admission will be one non perishable food item per person. Maps will be given out at the Community Center to guide you to the coops on display.
This event is co-sponsored by City Hens In Roeland Park (CHIRP) and the Kansas City Fiber Guild and supported by the Johnson County 4-H. It will feature Roeland Park Coops and the hens that call them home. There will be children’s activities including a coloring contest, the creation of a Funky Chicken Mural and an opportunity to learn about Johnson County 4-H.
The Kansas City Fiber Guild will be knitting with GIANT knitting needles and the public will be invited to participate. This will be a Public Art Project that may be displayed in Roeland Park.
We will also be celebrating “Spin in Public Day” with spinning demonstrations and lessons at individual coops. Wool and spindles will be provided. There will also be a display of handspun yarns incorporating chicken and peacock feathers.
Don’t forget your food donation to benefit the Roeland Park Food Pantry. Come play and learn with us.
