The Congressional Cemetery on Capitol Hill was recently cleaned up by a herd of "eco-goats" who consumed vines, poison ivy, invasive species, and weeds.  Article and video.  We now have an additional idea to add to the Permaculture presentation for a community garden at the Eastside Branch Library.  The 2013 Permaculture class proposed a food forest in a small copse of trees behind the library which is overrun with poison ivy and low brush.  A small herd of goats would be a great tool to get the area ready for planting.
