Mending Fences at the Goat Yard

Climate Summer interns working at goat yardLast week we were privileged to meet a group of Climate Summer interns who were in Lexington for a week to connect with community leaders and with one another to share ideas and solutions around the issue of climate change. On Saturday, they arrived at the LexFarm goat yard to help us install proper fence posts and a new gate to a forage area for the goats.

What does this have to do with combatting climate change? Well, it’s a tiny little piece of land, but little by little, as the goats forage, and we work to rebuild the surrounding soil in part with their composted manure and plant more forage, we will be demonstrating how farms and farm animals can be used in a system that sequesters carbon from the atmosphere.
