This 3 Day Introduction to Holistic Management training is designed to give you a good overview of Holistic Management and how you can apply it to your life, farm and enterprise. Holistic Management is much more than grazing livestock, and can radically empower the efficiency of design & decision making across any context. We see this as vital in our own work at the farm, as well as the next step for Permaculture Designers looking to work at a farm scale or establish projects of their own. You will learn how to create an optimal context for your farm or project, and how to reliably make more effective decisions that will move you towards your objectives more rapidly. We will see how Holistic Management Financial Planning works, and how this can be adapted to any regenerative enterprise. Understanding ecosystem processes, you will learn how to leverage their free benefits. In terms of grazing planning you will see how to get your livestock to the right place at the right time for the right reason and plan your grazing to increase your profit and lower inputs. Utilizing animal impact as a tool along with Holistic Decision Making & Financial Planning can allow you to create the healthy future landscape and life you want.
