Grazing Livestock for Soil Health, Biodiversity, and Productivity – Two Day
June 5 - June 6
Fire season is just around the corner, and managed grazing offers an elegant system that builds soil health and resilience to wildfires.
About this Event
At this workshop, we’ll hear from two leading practitioners in the field of regenerative grazing. We’ll witness firsthand a flock of sheep grazing for fuel reduction and soil-building at this beautiful retreat center in the hills of Anderson Valley. Both days of learning will be spent outdoors.
This workshop will explore opportunities to invest in the resilience of land, using livestock as a vehicle for soil-building. We’ll learn how planned grazing and monitoring can build drought and fire resilience, biodiversity, soil carbon and increase rainfall effectiveness.
We will also be introduced to a framework for decision-making and planning processes developed by Allan Savory, which helps individuals manage the complexity of the land, human, and economic resources they manage more effectively.
Who is this for? This workshop is for anyone wanting to improve current land management and create resilience in our life support system for generations to come. This includes city dwellers who wish to be more connected to land, young agrarians, and rural landowners or ranch managers who wish to understand how to use livestock to improve the health of their land rather than degrade it.
