We enjoyed watching this video from the French ski resort of Megève.

Like many communities in France, Megève has opted to use natural grazing to maintain its green spaces. Eco-grazing is a simple and ecological solution which improves the living environment and has many advantages.

Although an agricultural practice as old as farming itself, ‘L’écopâturage’ is an increasingly popular, environmentally friendly method of maintenance of green spaces with livestock.

As of last week, a flock of Thones and Martod sheep have settled in to the Pré Saint-Amour sector of Megève, next to the famous gondola on the edge of resort.

The sheep will keep this a pollution-free space, with the only sounds the soft ringing of their bells.

 

Mais qui voilà sur le pré Saint Amour ? 🐑
