Strip the Willow

The goats are being useful this week- stripping bark from the bottom of thick willow rods, to be made into plant supports around this garden and in the schools I’m working with this year. I poke a bundle of willow rods into the goat paddock and they spend all day happily chewing off the bark- this way we can push the rods into the ground without them rooting.
