Bamboo on the goat menu

The Whinnies Community Garden, next to our allotment, has a large amount of bamboo that is growing out of control. I fed some to the goats as an experiment. They loved it. As a result, the Whinnies are letting me take as much bamboo as I can chop down. The goats then eat the leaves and the canes are returned to the Whinnies to be used at a later date in the garden. Everyone benefits!
