THIS COURSE IS PART OF THE ACCREDITATION REQUIREMENTS FOR BECOMING AN ACCREDITED PROFESSIONAL (AP) OF THE SAVORY INSTITUTE.
Join us for this 8-day comprehensive at the beautiful Timshel Wildland in Central Virginia!
In this course, you will learn:
Foundations of Holism: What is holism and what does it mean to holistically regenerate? We will take an overwelmingly profound dive into regenerating relationship via the predator-prey connection, how time impacts management, and the relativity of the brittleness scale.
Ecosystem Processes: What does management have to do with relationship? What does relationships have to do with conversation? We will take a linguistic plunge into the four ecosystem processes in order to co-create a language in which relatonships may emerge. Water Cycle, Mineral Cycle, Community Dynamics, and Energy Flow.
Holistic Context: What is the converging point between YOUR whole and THE whole? We will work to both bifurcate visions from values and quiet life’s hummings in order to craft your Holistic Context, the potent and practical elucidation of the more beautiful world your heart already knows is possible. This is what makes management holistic.
Holistic Planned Grazing: How do you plan for recovery in your grazing management? How do you do more than simply manage complexity, but contextually heighten it? We will work through these questions and more as we go beyond “classroom learning” and work together to create your own and personalized Holistic Grazing Plan!
Holistic Land Planning: You said you wanted to regenerate and manage holistically. Now, how do we get this done? We will unpack the process in which your ideal landscape will emerge, learning aspects of keyline design, permaculture, holistic earthworks, and syntropic agriculture in the process.
Holistic Financial Planning: Do you have a simple-to-use, cash-based planning process to help you manage your farm or ranch’s finances? We will learn how you can increase your profit while making decisions that improve your quality of life and land health, and productivity.
Ecological Monitoring: We learned the foundations; we created a Holistic Context; we crafted a grazing plan with supportive land and financial plans. But how do we know it is working? We will learn the language of Mother Earth as we nurture deep relationships with the ecosystem processes all around us by implementing patience in observation alongside strategic monitoring protocols and contextually-functional tools that feed health indicators back to our livestock grazing operation.
