Loss of grasslands leads to climate change, floods, droughts, famine, and worldwide poverty.
It's our mission to promote large-scale restoration of the world's grasslands through Holistic Management.
Holistic Management is a process of decision-making and planning that gives people the insights and management tools needed to understand nature: resulting in better, more informed decisions that balance key social, environmental, and financial considerations.
In the context of the ecological restoration of grasslands worldwide, managers implement Holistic Planned Grazing to properly manage livestock — mimicking the predator/prey relationships in which these environments evolved.

Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy or nation is derived from the photosynthetic process—green plants growing on regenerating soil.
Wild claims are easy; our Holistic Management process is already working through various international special projects in a wide variety of climate and terrain. Among our strategic partners we can mention Grasslands LLC, The Nature Conservancy, and Heifer International.
We're creating sustainable solutions to the pressing problems tied to a failing agriculture, desertification, and climate change.
Through a network of international Hubs, we're training people to better protect and restore their grasslands, which in turn protects and restores their community.
We are at a tipping point and feel excited about our burgeoning global network leading transformation in their regions.
We act as a catalyst to inform policy, establish market incentives, and increase public awareness.
