We Love the Gypsy Goat Herder
Holistic land management happens in many ways. We especially like the Gypsy Goat Herder who does it her way. Imagine, one woman, hundreds of goats, 365 days of the year equals innovation in the realm of environmental care. Lani Malmberg is an inspiration for eco-action, with her work focused on non-toxic land care in the form of herding goats to pastures that would otherwise use health and environmentally harmful pesticides. Drawing from her multiple degrees in weed science, biology, botany and environmental restoration, she came to this innovative alternative to pesticides in weed management, utilizing the natural behavior of goats. Goats clear the vegetation and recycle these weeds through their gut to offer nutrition for the soil. In this video, Lani candidly shares her work on Maui, and expresses the energy of earth compassion and innovation to inspire us all. Her main motivation? To be a model and set an example for others to follow. YES!
