Introduction to Holistic Land Management

October 15 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm MDT

$175

Join us for a one-day introduction to the practical principals of regenerative agriculture and Holistic Management.  Developed by the Savory Institute, the original regenerative farming leader, Holistic Management is a framework that helps land managers navigate complex decisions within a context that they define. This one-day course is designed to give attendees a foundational understanding of the primary components to Holistic Management and farm health monitoring using the Ecological Outcome Verified methodology (EOV) so that they can more easily go on to study and learn more. We’ll feed you lunch on the farm and you’ll leave with a greater appreciation of leading-edge regenerative agriculture practices.
