Savory Institute Workshop
The Future of Water? Think Soil!
Restoring soils, water and biodiversity through Holistic Management
Presented by Jim Howell and Tony Malmberg
March 15, 2013
Event has passed. Thank you for your interest in Savory Institute and Holistic Management.
For generations, land managers around the world have been able to maintain and increase their stocking rates while drastically cutting expenses and improving the quality of their lives.
This has occurred in both high- and low-rainfall climates, on lands with varying levels of productivity, with large and small livestock herds, across varying cultures. How can such positive results be achieved in such different circumstances?
Continued education, planning, practice, and review of the results of Holistic Management on your farm or ranch will help you improve water quality, allow vegetation recovery, recharge groundwater, reduce chemical inputs, minimize erosion, improve animal health, resolve conflict, and increase profits.
Join us for this one-day workshop presented by Jim Howell and Tony Malmberg of the Savory Institute to discuss how Holistic Management can positively affect your land, land management, your triple bottom line, and productivity within your life.

Healing The World’s Ranches and Grasslands
When domestic livestock is properly managed to mimic the behavior of wild herbivores interacting with grasslands, we can regenerate our soils by stimulating the recycling of nutrients, water, and biological activity. Time is more important than numbers—overgrazing of plants is directly related to the amount of time the plants are exposed to grazing animals and the amount of time we allow for recovery between consecutive grazing events.
Making Decisions That Affect Your Land
Achieving positive results for many different situations requires decision-making tools that account for the immediate context of the land and conditions. In today’s world, this context is often quite complex because our relationships, our finances, and more than ever, the biological diversity that sustains our lives are interconnected. The only way we can make sound decisions in such an interdependent world is to acknowledge and embrace the fact that we can adapt and respond to changing conditions.
Getting Results with Holistic Management
Holistic Management gives you a framework to address complexity by providing you a set of principles and decision-making tools to manage your livestock for improved land health, resulting in enhancement of the financial, social, and ecological operations of your farm or ranch (the Triple Bottom Line.)
