Comments Off on Goats Clear Land for Synagogue… Really!

Thirty hungry goats munched their way through several acres of English ivy and underbrush, and the members of Ahavath Achim Synagogue, in Atlanta, Georgia, couldn’t have been more pleased. Goats are an environmentally friendly way to clear brush and overgrown land. They thrive on the type of vegetation that ordinarily requires heavy machinery or toxic chemicals to manage, and they leave behind natural fertilizer. Using goats to clear their land was a perfect complement to Ahavath Achim’s strong commitment to being environmentally conscious. Said Executive Director Manuel Mesa, “This is, by far, the cleanest, safest, most efficient and most cost-effective method for clearing overgrown spaces.”
