Holistic Management® Collaborative Open-Gate
Grazing for Long-term Resilience and Sustainable Profit
with Rob Havard, Duncan Leaney, Dave Beecher, and Oliver White
Wednesday 18th October, 2017
Corfe Village Hall, Newton Lane, Corfe, Somerset TA3 7AN
The day is suitable for farmers, advisors, and land managers, as well as those with a more general interest who are also concerned about issues such as animal health and welfare and how we can transition to more environmentally regenerative approaches to food production, how farming practices impact climate change and how we can work with nature to create more resilient landscapes e.g. addressing the issues of flooding (and soil loss), and drought - and enhance biodiversity. We are very grateful to Duncan and Sally for hosting the farm walk element of the day at their farm (see here).
Our guest presenters for this day bring bring with them a wide spectrum of experience and expertise, which will provide you with an introduction to several key aspects of regenerative pastoral systems, including:
- the 'how to' of planning grazing to regenerate the soil and productivity (conservation benefits thrown in for free!)
Our learning events generally attract a broad spectrum of experienced attendees, so we expect this to be an integrated learning experience drawing on experience and expertise from the participants too - and we hope that as usual the networking potential will be as valuable as the learning.
"Very interactive and thought provoking"
Please bring: appropriate clothing for the weather (remember that we will be outside for a significant amount of time - a hat is no doubt a good idea as well as waterproofs); clean boots (think biohazards); notebook and pens; camera, etc., flask (for farm walk element).
