Allegheny GoatScape improves community ecology by clearing overgrown land with a friendly herd of goats.

 

Why clear overgrown land with goats? Because goats are...

  • Effective: The herd can manage Pittsburgh's steep slopes and remove thorny, itchy, and invasive plants. They can do what people and machinery can not. 
  • Eco-friendly: Goats manage vegetation without herbicides, and they reduce the need for fuels and expensive machinery. They leave no waste and naturally fertilize the soil. The herd also reduces the soil seed bank by eating invasive plants before they go to seed. 
  • Engaging: There's nothing like cute, fuzzy animals to get your neighbors engaged in a project. If you're looking for community involvement, goats are the way to go.
