Article discussing these two approaches...
We will go in depth into both of these approaches to landscape healing and management, as well as how best to integrate them for increased synergy, in the upcoming Colorado workshop! Join us!

Thanks for the article Owen, it is really motivating to see the changes that the cow does:

And from the plow:

I really liked this quote you had from Aldo Leopold: "Game can be restored by the creative use of the same tools which have heretofore destroyed it - ax, plow, cow, fire, and gun."

During your Colorado workshop, will you talk about holistic management as well and how it integrates with keyline design?

Absolutely right, Adrien!
Holistic Management is a critical component of the approach I use in consulting, design, and in teaching. I have been working on integrating the HM framework with both Keyline and broad-acre Permaculture since 2007... Have integrated key aspects of HM into the Keyline scale of permanence as a more complete and comprehensive design and planning process... we will cover in depth the holistic context or holistic goal setting process, as well as having an emphasis on the HM grazing planning, and how to integrate that into a keyline design process...

am looking forward to this!

I really wish I could attend!

Do you do workshops in Eastern US or Canada sometimes?

Have done no keyline workshops as of yet in Canada or the Eastern US, but am in talks with potential convenors in both of these places for future events... always open to taking this workshop anywhere folks are interested!

There was a question about Owen having a course on the east coast and I am happy to say that we are hosting him for back to back workshops on Holistic Management and Keyline Design in Tennessee in June.
