Sheeps in our streets

27 August 2014
Eco-grazing is fashionable! The initiative of Tammy Dunakin, pioneer of ecological city mowing, is being imitated by French entrepreneurs.

Eco-grazing has long been the pioneer communities’s thing, but is now growing in dense urban areas. We filmed Tammy Dunakin, who uses goats to mow the lawns of Seattle. Know that now, everywhere in France, initiatives like this start to appear.

Upon returning from a shoot in Zanzibar, our team witnessed a peculiar scene, to say the least : sheeps on the lawns at the Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport (Paris).


Since May 2014, Grenoble is testing this technique, with the aim of maintaining biodiversity, fight against fire hazards and educate visitors about the preservation of nature in the city. This is just one example among the myriad of cities-more than 150 just in France-, that adopt animals to mow lawns.

Tammy’s initiative has come a long way. Maybe one day we will see sheeps and goats graze in our gardens!
