Explore Opportunities with the
Because people range from self-directed learners to preferring one-on-one intensive instruction – and everywhere in between – we offer a range of opportunities to engage with regenerative agriculture. We utilize the organizing framework of Holistic Management, which empowers you to choose freely from among many tools and tactics available, plug them into a plan of your own life design, closely monitor and control results, apply scientific rigor in feedback loops, and continually grow your wealth and future resource base.
We firmly believe that this is a paradigm well worth the value of its cost for full training, and that it pays for itself time and again as it is implemented. We also believe, however, that finances should not be an obstacle to getting started or learning the paradigm. Many practitioners eventually find that in-person workshops are key, but there's no right way to learn. Start your journey here!
