Help get an apple orchard planted in Chimborazo Park

November 18, 2013 6:49 pm by

Some folks at The Martin Agency have partnered with Enrichmond and Blue Bee Cider to launch a Kickstarter campaign to get an apple orchard planted in Chimborazo Park:

We are partnering with Enrichmond & Blue Bee Cider to create a community apple orchard right in Richmond in Chimborazo Park. But before we can plant the trees, we have to clear the land. That’s where the “kids” come in. Instead of using heavy equipment or chemicals to clear the land out, we want to use goats. Lots of goats. And I’ve seen them in action, they can tear some through shrubbery.

We are hoping to raise $5k by the end of our kickstarter campaign to pay for the goats, and we have some really cool prizes to go along with backing it.

So check it out (at least watch the video of Anne Feild reporting on “bad kids”) and help us get this thing funded!
