Ann Adams, Director of Education for HMI, gave two presentations about Holistic Management this spring. In April, she presented “Healing the Land with Livestock” to a group of veterans interested in farming. This presentation was part of a “Boots & Roots: The Veteran Farmer Training Project” that is a collaboration of the Albuquerque Veteran Affairs, La Montanita Coop, and the Downtown Action Team.
She also gave a presentation on “A Holistic Approach to Watersheds” for the Rio Grande Advisory Council (RAC). The RAC is a network of citizens—educators, students, professionals, land owners, federal, state, and local governmental agencies, and other stakeholders—who share a common concern for the conservation of the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo watershed. The RAC provides a communication tool for groups and organizations on both sides of the international border, which are actively engaged in Rio Grande/Rio Bravo watershed issues and concerns.
