Goats and Gardens: On Our Way!

Today we submitted an IACUC Proposal for use of goats to clear the unwanted vegetation from the site of the Public Health Garden. If we are approved, we will be contracting Eco Goats to bring 30 goats on site for a maximum of 3 days to eat up the weeds during the first week of May!  There will be opportunities for demonstrations and discussions with students about the use of goats and other small ruminants for land management.  Stay tuned for updates and let us know if you are interested in learning more.
