Cattle grazing on lush summer grass at Matheson Farms, Bellingham, WA


Can a holistic approach to livestock grazing and ranch management really regenerate soil and sequester CO2? Improve water infiltration? Increase drought resistant? Boost productivity? Produce healthier food? Achieve a better quality of life for farmers and ranchers?


See for yourself the results of 20+ years of applying these practices on the land at two Roots of Resilience field days Saturday, June 24. The Roots of Resilience Bellingham and Cheney learning sites will be hosting two sessions each:

A morning session aimed livestock producers
A free, kid-friendly afternoon session for consumers

Find more info and register or RSVP for the Bellingham field day.

Over 20 years ago Matheson Farms near Bellingham and the Lazy R Ranch in Cheney, near Spokane, participated in a Kellogg Foundation Integrated Food & Farming project at WSU. The project trained 160 ranchers, farmers, and ag professionals in Holistic Management and consensus building.

Saturday, June 24, Matheson Farms and the Lazy R Ranch will be holding field days to showcase the results of 20+ years of practicing holistic decision making and holistic planned grazing. See how these practices have changed the land and the lives of the ranchers.



Spokane/Cheney Field Day


Beth Robinette, fourth-generation rancher, second-generation Holistic Management practitioner, and co-owner of the Lazy R Ranch, will be your field-day guide. Beth raises cattle and sheep. She will share the key ethics behind their land management and how they have managed to keep their family ranch wild and free for over 80 years while creating nutrient dense, delicious food.

The morning producer session is $15; the afternoon consumer session is free.
