July 10, 2022 - “Good Shepherds Seek Home Pasture”:
A local group has been making headlines
with an ecological approach to fire prevention
Good Shepherd's Regenerative Land Management
employs a herd of goats and sheep to clear defensible space,
sequester carbon and activate soil biology on private and public property
throughout San Diego County.
After a year of non-stop nomadic work
the good shepherds are ready to establish a permanent home base
with 140 grazing animals three dogs, one cat and six humans
they need access to a minimum of 60 acres of grassland
and five acres of dedicated residential and operating space.
Although some of the crew
both two-legged and four-legged
will be stationed off-site on rotating job contracts
a dedicated home pasture
provides vital security for the shepherds
while serving a valuable purpose in the community.
Rediscover a healthy tree canopy
and the enjoyment of park-like settings
in areas that are otherwise overgrown
and at risk for hot fires.
Properly managed grazing encourages perennial grasses
that retain moisture and prevent erosion.
The animals also provide organic milk and dairy products.(! ; ~ )
With an eye toward holistic wellness and education
the good shepherds model many aspects of a sustainable village
in the way they live and work
and while usable structures such as barns or houses are ideal
all they really need is water.
If you have leads on possible locations
for a long-term agricultural lease
please reach out.
The shepherds are also open to tax deductible donations, conservation land easements and land trust management.
