As part of HMI’s Hands On Learning we have partnered with a select number of organizations who provide residential production training and Holistic Management so young agrarians can learn basic farming and ranching skills to prepare for a farm and ranch manager position or start their own farm or ranch businesses.
The 2018 New Agrarian Training Program started off with a one-day introduction to Holistic Management taught by Ann Adams in Albuquerque, NM. This workshop included developing draft holistic goals and practicing testing on-farm/ranch decisions and time out on the land learning how to read ecosystem health and understand the impact tools make on the landscape. The rest of the Holistic Management curriculum will be offered online through the summer by other instructors.
Monica Pless, Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program Director worked with the apprentices to prepare them for their positions at different agricultural operations around the West including Holistic Management operations such as the Ranney Ranch, San Juan Ranch, Round River Resource Management, the Triangle P Cattle Company, and the James Ranch.
