The goats are coming

Enrichmond, partnering with the City of Richmond Departments of Parks and Recreation and Public Works, The Martin Agency, Friends of Chimborazo Park, Blue Bee Cider, and Goat Busters announces the first 2014 Earth Day Richmond Community Impact Project- Chimborazo Orchard Goatscaping.

This Memorial Day weekend and part of next week 40+ goats will be ‘working’ their way through the urban orchard site located adjacent to the Church Hill Dog Park in lower Chimborazo Park. Jace Goodling from Goat Busters anticipates the process taking 4 to 5 days.

If you have never seen goatscaping, love the idea of supporting the urban orchard, or just enjoy the thought of evasive kudzu being eradicated, come out and see the goats in action.

Now that it is ok to have geese and chickens, can we keep a pet goat? Or even better, a pig. They are super smart, can be house broken and let into the house.

@#11 Maybe on the goats (and horses and mules). Doubtful on the pigs. A word of caution: goats will eat everything in the yard and then some. From (not sure if this has been updated since keeping chickens became legal) : http://municipalcodes.lexisnexis.com/codes/richmondva/ Sec. 10-87. Cattle, horses, mules or goats running at large. It shall be unlawful for the owner or any person in charge thereof to permit any cow, calf, horse, mule or goat to go at large, graze or pasture on any street, alley, park or unenclosed lot within the city.

How do you make my favorite park even better? You drop 40 goats in it. That’s how. Can’t wait. http://t.co/0taAdbkaW3

Westover Plantation is looking to rehome their goat, Murray. He’s lovely. Maybe he could join the goat pack/herd in Chimborazo.
