This in-depth course is being offered here at Paicines Ranch, in California, as part of HMI’s Whole Farm/Ranch Land Management Series. As a farmer, rancher or land steward, you know that one of your greatest assets is the land you work with, and managing that land can be tough due to weather conditions, environmental pressures and high input costs. This course was designed to help you regenerate your land for better soil health, bio-diversity, productivity and profitability through the practice of Holistic Management.
This 6-day course will be held at Paicines Ranch where you can see first-hand applications of Holistic Management. Deepening your understanding of Holistic Management starts with creating or refining your Whole Farm/Ranch Goal and practicing the Holistic Decision-Making process. Further interactive, hands-on sessions will have you creating plans for and practicing biological monitoring, holistically managed grazing and creating the infrastructure to move towards your holistic goal in a financially sustainable manner.
Due to grant funding, the cost for this program (valued at $800) is being offered at $250 per person.
