Come for an evening to learn about using goats for environmental and eco-friendly poison ivy and brush removal services with Michelle and Alan Aulson of Goats to Go at Great Rock Farm here in Georgetown. See pictures from local success stories and hear about this much desired method for controlling vegetation in heavily used recreational lands such as suburban backyard and gardens, local Parks & Recs, and conservation lands.
Goats are very effective and efficient in areas that are not easily mowed neared rocks, stumps, and walls; near stream banks that are sensitive to slope erosion; and areas with near water, heavily used by human and pets, and bee populations that are impacted by the presence and use of chemicals. Areas around where the goats are browsing can continue to be used and enjoyed by the community and also draw people out to watch the goats work without the use of chemicals and machinery.
