Aug 3: Castor, AB Holistic Management Workshop Planning for Success into the Next Generation of Farmers and Ranchers

Posted by Dana Penrice on July 14, 2016

Are you interested in nutrient-dense food for you and your family? Are you a farmer or livestock producer interested in learning how to successfully transfer ownership of your farm or ranch to the younger generation? Do you want to learn how we can heal our land with a healthier food system?

Redtail Farms Day is part of Holistic Management International’s Open Gate Learning Series. Open Gates are peer-to-peer action-based learning days with short presentations and small group exercises geared for participants to share discoveries and management techniques with guidance from experienced facilitators and producers.

Holistic Management works with nature, not against it. We will discuss planet- and animal-friendly management techniques that lead to richer soil, improved water containment, nutrient-dense food and more prosperous and successful farms and ranches.

Come and be a part of this on-the-ground learning day and help strengthen your local foodshed. Because we all have a stake in the way our food is grown.
