HMI is excited to announce our newest Certified Educator, Glenn Boyd, who works in both Ireland and Saudi Arabia. Glenn joined HMI’s Certified Educator Training Program in 2019 after completing HMI’s 1-on-1 Distance Learning Program.
Glenn has practical knowledge and experience as a farmer working in a wide range of environmental conditions from Ireland, France and Australia to the extreme deserts of the Middle East.
He says, “I am a firm believer in regenerative agriculture and biological farming. Observing ecosystem degradation throughout my working life I have seen the importance of looking after the land. Using livestock brings life back to the soil. By integrating livestock, soil biology can be regenerated, wildlife supported, biodiversity increased and an ecosystem revitalised. I understand the significance of a diverse biology to generate a healthy soil and the intrinsic link to producing wholesome nutritious food and robust ecosystems.
“As an HMI Certified Educator I continue to further my education on regenerative agriculture to impart this knowledge and experience to others. I am currently studying for a MSc Organic Farming. I am a member of the Pasture Fed Livestock Association (PFLA) UK and Ireland, an organisation of beef, lamb and dairy farmers who raise their livestock on pasture and grass. Given my experience of working in such a diverse range of environments with their many challenges and rewards and my passion for regenerative farming, I relish the opportunity to teach people that there is always another way.”
