• Aced the Base

    We recently were contacted by 19 Wing Comox to do a trial near their base, which we hope will lead to other work there. Despite a rain delay, we finished the site in four days, and got some great media interest as well from CTV Vancouver Island, The Comox Record and The Goat Radio See our Facebook page for articles.

  • Goats in the Garden??!!

    We were asked by a wonderful couple in Nanaimo if we could help to tidy up their garden, which had been overtaken by thistles, blackberries and assorted weeds. We said “bring it on”.

  • A Recent Job in Parksville

    We recently worked on a residential job in Parksville, clearing a slope in a backyard of blackberries up to 2m. in height, along with some assorted weeds including horsetail and crown vetch. The crew had a great time climbing around on the hill, and revealed some stonework which had been covered with blackberry plants. The customer was happy with the results and has plans to put a terraced garden on the site.

  • Esquimalt Earth Days

    Well, we just got back from a great visit to Esquimalt, near Victoria, to help the Parks Department celebrate Earth Day by tackling invasive plants. We were on site in Highrock Park, one of the many beautiful parks in the Township, and students from neighbouring schools came and helped pull blackberries, english ivy and some other invasives. One of the days we helped in a fenced area, and the other in a pen where kids were invited to feed some ivy to the goats through the fence. It was so much fun to see the happy faces on the students and also the adults that came to help. Many thanks to Rick and his awesome staff for making us feel welcome! Hope we can return soon.
