Lawnmower ~ Andover, MA Goes Old School;-)

The Globe's Brian MacQuarrie writes Here’s something to chew on...
"In tough times, Andover has found a money-saving idea to chew on. The town has recruited a half-dozen goats to keep a public meadow trim and tidy. Taxpayers will not be charged a penny, and the four-legged lawnmowers will be treated to an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord of grass, brush, and other growth that is threatening to overrun the Virginia Hammond Reservation. [...] the goats might clean as much as a half-acre every three days, for free."
Such ideas are what make Massachusetts an "innovation economy";-)
