Living Fences Make Good Neighbors

We've been having lots of unexpected visits from hungry neighbors lately. 

The sheep aren't too bad--they just eat the grass--but the goats help themselves to our vegetables, too. 

On the theory that good fences make good neighbors, we're building a "living fence" along the edge of our farm. Dorise "Doko" Kowalewski, CFFI's current president and jack-of-all-trades, designed the fence.

As the surrounding vegetation grows (which happens really fast here in the tropics), we will weave it into the criss-crossing supports. Et voilรก!
