How do you practice Adaptive Agriculture? You start by educating yourself on cutting edge practices, by questioning conventions, by equipping yourself with the skills to flex, adapt, adjust to changing conditions and contexts.
HMI is partnering with the School of Adaptive Agriculture where students are immersed in a residential training program and are exposed to a broad spectrum of scales, styles, strategies, and skills, using a Holistic Management framework.
This 14 week program combines experiential learning on a 5,000 acre holistically managed ranch with classroom based learning in order to send students off with a comprehensive vocabulary, skill set, and understanding of the foundations of small scale agriculture. Over 25 field trip hosts and 12 guest instructors participate in the learning experience, giving students a well rounded education that will help to launch them into a career in the food system.
Are you looking for your entry point into sustainable agriculture? Having a strong understanding of crop production, animal husbandry, business management, industrial arts, and community dynamics is integral to launching you into the food system. Join other regenerative agriculturalists at the School of Adaptive Agriculture for an inspirational and transformational 14 weeks. April and July 2017 start dates, with applications are now open!
