Goats to go 'on patrol' at Scrap Exchange Saturday

Posted June 9, 2016


Here's a little something different to do this weekend - watch goats!

The Scrap Exchange will host 25 goats on Saturday to clear out kudzu and make more room for the creative reuse center's community garden. They'll be there from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday. The Scrap Exchange is at 2050 Chapel Hill Rd., Durham.

“We’d prefer to fill their bellies with kudzu than use environmentally unfriendly pesticides," said Ann Woodward, Executive Director of The Scrap Exchange, in a press release. "And they make good company. It’s fun to watch them do their work.”

Kids and adults are invited to see the goats do their work on Saturday. It's all part of The Scrap Exchange's community gardening and public recreation project on the east side of its warehouse. Lettuces, mottled green beans and peppers already are growing in the 10 portable urban gardens, which have been rented to community members.

Kids and adults are encouraged to go and watch the goats do their work. (Check out the inside of the Scrap Exchange for all kinds of items for creative summer projects!).
