LAGUNA BEACH – Chicky Mama, an Americana, and Queen Victoria, a treasure Golden Moran, were one of the ladies from the hour last Sunday as “coopers” on bicycles toured through Reem Khalil’s backyard admiring her kitschy chicken coops, fertile veggie gardens and abundant plum and pomegranate trees.
Khalil, a painter, may be the founding father of a grass-roots-organized November classic referred to as annual Tour de Coop. The big event, which highlights a minimum of twelve backyard chicken dwellings, takes place to celebrate sustainable environments in urban environments and also to spread the how-to to other people who share exactly the same interests.
On November. 8, greater than 100 adults, seniors and youngsters met at Laguna Coffee Co. Some who needed accommodations bike or perhaps a quick tune-up stopped at Laguna Cyclery. After that they headed towards the first coops in North Laguna.
After much cluckery, the audience headed back to town and to Laguna Gorge. It was back through downtown, in to the village and as much as Bluebird Gorge.
Participants came throughout Oc. Everyone came with similar intentions – returning to basics and building community. The tour incorporated a minimum of 10 spots and most twelve chickens and sustainable lifestyles.
Khalil, who also teaches art around, happens to be about sustainable living. Becoming an adult in Newport Beach, her parents recommended wholesome foods, partially by growing their very own. As she increased up and started families, she expanded on which she did like a kid and returned to basics.
Now, she and her family reside in a completely permaculture home. She creates her very own food, collects rainwater in barrels and utilizes grey water. Chicky Mama and Queen Victoria have a lot of jobs. They’ve created composting, lay between 3 to 5 eggs per week and up until the soil. In her own garden, Khalil grows carrots, beets, Swiss chard, kale, onion, tomato and lettuce.
“I call myself a refined Bohemian,” she stated. “I also make sustainable clothing. We’re only a simple little homestead.”
Khalil stated her idea for that Tour de Coop originated from an mid-day ride together with her neighbor, Kerry Brown, who also was wanting to get chickens. The 2 had learned about other coops around and desired to get tips on how to build them.
