New agrarian superheroes in the making, we’ve teamed up with Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program to provide Holistic Management® training to apprentices, mentees, interns and new farmers and ranchers dedicated to making this world a better and greener place!
We don’t mean to brag, but this squad is pretty exclusive. We’re limiting the participants to a diverse group of beginners who have their hands in the ground and are from all over the world and different climates. We also have limited spots so we can give you lots of TLC and so you can network and learn from each other too. In other words, don’t wait too long to register!
This series can be taken online from anywhere with internet – from your favorite coffee shop to your own comfy couch. We’ve got live instruction and helpful feedback on course assignments so it’s a virtual, interactive course just for you! Additional awesome videos enhance learning and recorded webinars allow for later viewing or reviewing (so whatever your schedule is, it works).

What Former Participants Have to Say:
“The NAP Intro to Holistic Management has been a wonderful addition to the farm work I’ve done this season. This course has taught me much of the foundational theory and framework that often goes unspoken about on farms and connected it in a meaningful way to the labor I’ve been doing. Understanding the why, not just the how, feels crucial to actually pursuing agriculture as a livelihood.”
“The Introduction to Holistic Management Course was an incredible opportunity to articulate the dreams that live with in me and give them a frame work to form them in goals that can be achieved. The language of planning begins to be crafted and your eyes open to seeing the world with questions that enable you to cultivate healthy decision making that is connected to your highest goals of caring for the earth, your community, and your family. I feel so fortunate to be able to take this course and know that these are seeds that will grow with me into the landscape of my life, thank you so much.”
“The NAP HMI course has given me a framework that I can apply to any of my future endeavors; to help make decisions, plan for financial stability, and work towards accomplishing my holistic goals.”
