Here a baa, there a baa.... (Photo by Eric Richardson/http://blogdowntown.com)

You’ve heard of working for peanuts.  For the next week or so,  100 South Africa Boer goats will be working for weeds when they’re let loose on Angel’s Knoll: the steep, green park adjacent to Angel’s Flight and below California Plaza.

In order to clear the hard-to-reach, Bunker Hill  slope, the Community Redevelopment Agency has “hired” the horned ones (via Environmental Land Management in San Diego) as a cheaper and more environmentally friendly alternative to humans wielding gas-powered trimmers.   This Tuesday, June 6th, new CRA/LA CEO Christine Essel invites the public to join her at the corner of 4th and Hill Streets from 9:00AM – 11:00AM to welcome back the goats for their third, annual, All-Day-Hillside-Happy-Hour.

To munch along with the weed-eating bunch, take the Metro Red Line to Pershing Square,  grab breakfast at Grand Central Market (perhaps pineapple and cherry turnovers at La Adelita Panaderia) and take the Angel’s Flight up to California Plaza Watercourt to gaze and graze with the goats.

Out of respect for the workers,  you’ll want to avoid Grand Central’s cabra tacos.
