About a week ago I became the first and only Certified Holzer Practitioner in North America. To the best of my knowledge I am the only person to receive this distinction outside of the formal training programs at the Krameterhof and in Russia.
Sepp is not an easy person to impress, it took over 10 successful Holzer style projects, lots of hard work, and plenty of gumption to finally receive this distinction; graduating summa cum laude with a degree in ecology was a breeze by comparison.
So what does this mean? I'm ready to facilitate an improved relationship between people and their landscape, I'm ready to play my part in the silent, peaceful revolution that's coming.
I give thanks to Sepp Holzer for the vision and tireless work he has done throughout his life; for blazing the trail that I now continue, for blasting through the wall that I now walk through.
