I wrote At Home with Holistic Management® over 15 years ago and HMI has sold thousands of copies to families around the world who want to create a life of meaning. Just recently, we began to sell At Home as an e-book so it is now even more affordable at $10 and no shipping.
At the time I wrote the book, I was raising my son, Ben, and had just become an HMI Certified Educator. I was aware of how Holistic Management was not only a powerful tool for improving land health, but also helping individuals and families better define the values that were important to them and providing a framework for helping them make conscious decisions that would create better relationships, more connection with the natural world, and a path to make the world a better place.
I’ve been pleased that over the years people have told me how helpful the book has been for them as they wanted to introduce these concepts to other members in their family, particularly children. When I wrote the book, my son was 11 years old, so I experimented with ways to engage him in the decision-making process and to encourage critical thinking skills in him as well as a love of the outdoors. Through that experience, I knew At Home needed to be a book with lots of fun-filled exercises, informative illustrations, and inspiring quotes to engage the whole family.
At Home not only steps the reader through the various aspects of the holistic decision-making process, it also makes accessible to the average consumer/citizen the concept of how nature functions and how our decisions make a difference in the health of the environment. That relationship will hopefully be less of a burden and more of a reward as people’s environmental literacy increases and we get nature-deficit people out into the natural world.
Earth Day prompts many of us to think about the environment and what we can do to help. I know of no better way to celebrate Earth Day then to get out and have a relationship with Nature (even if that means you nab a couple of Pokemon to get the family outdoors).
