Join farmers and ranchers from around the world in Texas!  We’ll get out on the land, learn from each other, swap stories, and share ideas on how best to manage land for a sustainable future. This unique event will include the Josey Pavilion Grand Opening, HMI’s 30th Anniversary Celebration, and two Open Gate Ranch Days. We’ll also enjoy lots of delicious local cuisine and some great music and entertainment. Tent camping will be available and we will be reserving a block of rooms at a motel near the ranch. Holistic Management practitioners, educators, organic ranchers, and anyone interested in sustainable land management and local food will want to attend.
