Grasslands can be the genesis of global healing, self-sufficient communities, and a renewable food supply. 

70% of the world's grasslands have been degraded.

Loss of grasslands leads to climate change, floods, droughts, famine, and poverty worldwide.

Up to 99% of tallgrass prairie in the u.s. and canada is gone.

The original Tallgrass Prairie, which extended from western Indiana to the eastern part of Kansas, Nebraska, and North and South Dakota and south to Oklahoma and Texas, has been virtually eliminated throughout its historic range. 

Holistic Management gives land stewards the power to achieve social, environmental, and financial transformation.

"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it.

Developed by wildlife ecologist Allan Savory, Holistic Management is a proven solution to reverse the loss of grasslands worldwide. 

As land managers, we use Holistic Planned Grazing to mimic predator-prey relationship and other key evolutionary insights to restore grass production, water retention, and soil carbon. We also use Holistic Financial Planning and other tools to guide a process of decision-making that helps us manage the complexity inherent in natural systems.

Utilizing Holistic Management results in better, more informed decisions that balance key social, environmental, and financial considerations. The ultimate result is achievement of the Quality of Life we desire, with assurance we are improving the land and resources for generations to come.
