HMI has been partnering with the Grange Farm School in Willits, California to add more Holistic Management Programming into their curriculum and to provide Holistic Management training to local farmers and ranchers. In fact, we are in the middle of a Whole Farm/Ranch Business Planning series that is sold out.
We wanted to let our network know that the Grange Farm School is now accepting applications (deadline is March 1st) for their 14-week residential Student Program starting in April or July, which offers you the tools and confidence to manage a successful agricultural enterprise, whether in farming, ranching, or related fields.
You will live and work on a beautiful 5,000 acre ranch with diverse vegetables, grains, fruit trees, and livestock. Guest instructors and staff members provide a comprehensive curriculum in business management, industrial arts, animal husbandry, soil and ecology, and crop production, supported by an understanding of the theory and history of our food systems. You will leave with hands-on practical experience, and a framework for thinking outside the box, creative decision making, and communication that improves your business planning, community networking, and relationship building .
Grange Farm School programs are designed for practical people who are ready to make a difference in the real world. Students with a desire to enter a career in agriculture equipped with essential skills, knowledge, and resources. Students who want to be among the million new farmers, ranchers, and small businesses this country needs in order to transform agriculture through creative and profitable enterprises.
