Goatscaping: ‘Kids’ graze to help keep Richmond park beautiful

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The kids are back at Byrd Park!

Goats are helping to graze and mow down unwanted plants at the park on Thursday as part of “Byrd Park Carillon Goatscaping,” a community impact project by Enrichmond and partners: Bright Hope Farm & Apiary, Carillon Civic Association and the Richmond Department of Parks and Recreation.

Dubbed the “Chew Crew and Munch Bunch,” the goats are tasked with feasting on about an acre of evasive kudzu and English ivy plants within a week.

Thursday’s project is part of the 23rd Richmond Earth Day Festival in Shiplock Park.
