McCauley Family Farm, located west of Longmont, is in its third year of actively implementing an ecological farming approach. This August we invite members of our community to join us as we begin a key component of our whole farm design.The ECOLOGICAL FARMING: Keyline Design for Optimal Water Use and Thriving Soils workshop will include a two-day HANDS ON experience and exploration of whole farm planning using ecological principles and proven innovative land management techniques. Participants will learn highly effective ways to plan for and achieve the full power of a Dynamic Design approach for land, animals, profits, water and soils. Practical principles from Keyline Design, Holistic Management and Resilience Science will be applied. Each day will include classroom as well as outdoor exercises and practicum--including a demonstration of the Yeomans’ Keyline sub-soiler. The ‘learn-by-doing’ model is a key benefit of this unique workshop opportunity.
The workshop will be led by Owen Hablutzel, the preeminent instructor for Keyline Design® in the United States, a Holistic Management® Certified Educator and full-time consultant who works across the globe. Owen has been successfully working to transform soils, fertility, and whole landscape hydration through regenerative techniques since 2007. By working together with farms, ranches, and land managing organizations his integrated and Dynamic Design approach is helping to create more fertile landscapes, robust farm economies, and resilient watersheds across the western US and many of the world’s other dry places.
