Conestoga hires “lamb-scapers” to graze solar fields

Conestoga College has hired a group of “lamb-scapers” to maintain the vegetation growing under solar panels at its Cambridge-Foundation Street campus. Ten sheep will graze the property for two weeks in the spring and return throughout the summer to maintain the grounds. The first year of this pilot project will focus on setup and implementation, while the second will prioritize educational and engagement opportunities. “It presents a unique opportunity to integrate urban agriculture at Conestoga while eliminating the need for herbicides and gas-powered landscaping equipment,” said Conestoga environmental sustainability and energy performance manager Samantha Tremmel Lamb.
