Sheep Graze at The Montreal Botanical Garden (2018)

Sheep in Residence


Eco Project at the Montreal Botanical Garden (Jardin botanique de Montréal) at 4101 Sherbrooke Street E., corner of Pie-IX, involves the use of sheep (Ovis aries) doing what they love to do: eat grass. Espace pour la vie Montréal writes about this wonderful initiative that combines urban agriculture and animals: “From May 15 to July 2, nine sheep will be “mowing the lawn” at the Jardin botanique, near the Leslie Hancock Garden. […]. This eco-grazing is a joint initiative by the Jardin botanique and an NPO called the Laboratoire d’agriculture urbaine (AU/LAB), as part of the ‘Biquette à Montréal’ project.” There are nine ewes and four lambs. For more, go [here] and [here] and [here] and [here].
