HOLISTIC LAND PLANNING
October 20 - October 21$500
This capstone course integrates previous courses and enables you to create a long-term infrastructure development plan to generate enduring wealth from the land.
Consider new fencing layouts that minimize the number of water points required and that give us much greater flexibility in our grazing planning and more options for improving animal performance.
Anticipate the facilities needed as animal numbers and herd sizes increase, and thus avoid costly redesigns in the future.
Learn the Holistic Land Planning process by working through an example provided by the educator or by developing their own holistic land plan.
Classes will be held at the Sorensen Ranch in Clover Valley, Nevada. Participants will experience hands-on learning, some classroom presentations, and lots of interaction with fellow students. The ranch has a 3,500 + square foot Walipini style solar greenhouse where produce is grown year-round, outdoor gardens, lots of shade, and is at the foot of the Humboldt mountain range.
