As so many of our friends, family, fellow students and co-workers are aware, the UMD Public Health Garden team is working hard to clear weeds, grow seeds, and break ground in the garden space next month. A fun and exciting part of that plan, which includes 25-30 weed-eating goats from our friends and colleagues at Eco-Goats, will be highlighted with several demonstrations hosted by Brian Knox (of Eco-Goats) and the PHG Gals on Monday May 2nd at the garden site: Between the School of Public Health & Eppley Recreation Center. UMD IAA students are invited to attend the demonstration with yours truly at 11:00am. There will be additional demonstrations at 1:00pm and 3:00pm as well as nightly events.
The official Eco-Goat kickoff party starts at 5:00pm on Sunday, May 1st. While the goats fill up on thistle, the Public Health Garden gang will be sharing pizza with all our guests. Stop by anytime before 10:00pm!
