This gave me such a laugh. Pity it took me 3 years to see this. I am now showing it to our permie kids group, they love it and so do their parents :-) Thanks Myron

This is actually a very old idea.
I can't seem to add an image but it boils down to a cylinder with mesh, put rabbits inside and let them walk + and eat.
Google Rabbit Lawn Mower and you'll see what I mean

This is really cool. A good zone 1 lawn care method!
 
I think they should change the spelling to Sandy Eggo. This tiny ad agrees with me.
