Urban Foraging & New Friends

Started the day with a visit to an awesome urban outpost for sustainable living in Madison. We were invited to forage the boys at Sue Hessel's 3/4 acre urban lot that has a lot going on: food forest building, vegetable growing, starts hoop house, applying for urban agzoning status, and more. The goats were much obliged, diving into many new invasive species, including some that had set seeds already. We departed in the afternoon with 5 full-bellied goats and a couple of wonderful sandwiches for ourselves, wishing we could have stayed longer . Big thanks to Sue for sharing her place and vision with us. Deirdre did a video interview, look for it to be posted soon. In the meantime, enjoy this visually delicious,  lush greenery as much as the goats did!
