Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Sustainable land management and fire risk reduction through outreach, education, and implementation of goat grazing. City Grazing is engaged in community building and sustainable land management, working with local schools, universities, community organizations, municipalities, Fire Safe Councils, fire departments, residents, businesses, and home owners’ associations’ to create fire safety, intelligently managed land, awareness of carbon sequestration, and well-being - community health, healthy local land management, and planetary atmospheric health.
We want City Grazing to reach out to inspire directly with goats through as many public appearances, school visits, and social events as we can. We have taken goats to Bayview community events sponsored by the India Basin Neighborhood Association; Earth Day events at Bayview Opera House, USF, and UCSF; ACC’s Pet Pride Day in Golden Gate Park; San Francisco Friends School; SF Academy of Sciences; and many presentations at day-camps and schools throughout SF. We bring goats to San Francisco Department of Public Works’ Arbor Day events and Friday Night Markets. We also attend many local community festivals. Through all of this we reach many urban residents, adults and especially children, many of whom otherwise have little access to animals. The soothing, positive, transformational effect is immediately apparent. Contact with the goats facilitates a sense of well-being and an opportunity for personal growth and environmental education. We want to find ways to extend this to retirement communities, community centers, and more schools.
