Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy or nation is derived from the photosynthetic process?green plants growing on regenerating soil.
One-third of the earth?s surface is grasslands.? 70% of the grasslands have been degraded. Loss of grasslands leads to climate change, floods, draughts, famines and worldwide poverty.
The Savory Institute?s mission is to promote large-scale restoration of the world?s grasslands through Holistic Management, where holistic managers implement Holistic Planned Grazing to properly manage livestock ? mimicking the predator/prey relationships in which these environments evolved.
Its strategy is three-fold: to demonstrate results in diverse contexts; to equip and empower people and share our experiences in learning and achieving success; and to pave the way for a global movement to take off.? With an estimated 45 million acres already managed holistically, the institute is on the brink of affecting major change at the landscape level with a strategy that seeks to influence two billion acres by 2025 through the establishment of 100 Hubs, which provide holistic management training and support.
Come to this all-day seminar by Chris and Allan Savory to learn why grasslands aren?t just important to ranchers, but have a wide-ranging effect on the greater community. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization and any stable economy. Our grasslands can be the genesis of an incredibly strong economy, more self-sufficient communities, and the basis of miraculously renewable food production.
