Ranching for Resilience—A Field Day for Producers and Consumers (Spokane, WA)

June 24, 2017 - June 25, 2017

$15

A holistic approach to livestock grazing and ranch management is healthier for the land and the climate, and better for producers and consumers, too.

Come to our Spokane Field Day to learn how we can use agriculture and pastoralism to revitalize ecosystems, preserve wild spaces, and regenerate soil.

Beth Robinette, fourth-generation rancher, second-generation Holistic Management practitioner, and co-owner of the Lazy R Ranch, will be your field-day guide. She will share the key ethics behind their land management and how they have managed to keep their family ranch wild and free for over 80 years while creating nutrient-dense, delicious food.

Please pre-register (morning producer session) or RSVP (free afternoon consumer session) for one or both session so we can make sure to have materials and accommodations for you. Thanks.

Spokane Field Day Program

Morning Producer Workshop, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

The morning is tailored to livestock producers, agencies, and organizations. The morning session is $15 per person.

The morning session includes an overview of Holistic Management and Holistic Planned Grazing. Then we’ll do a pasture walk with a show-and-tell discussion about calving in sync with nature, paddock design, and grass finishing.

The Lazy R Ranch includes both irrigated and non-irrigated land, so bring your questions about how Holistic Management and Holistic Planned Grazing applies to both.

We’ll also talk about the services and training Roots of Resilience offers to help you adopt these ideas in your own operation.
