Go for a walk, look at the land and discuss radical new ideas for managing grasslands with three grassland and range management specialists. 

Presented by CNGA in partnership with Yolo County RCD, NRCS, Yocha DeHe Farm & Ranch. 

                        

  • How does nature grow soil, and biodiversity, and productivity at no cost?
  • What simple and practical tools does nature use to keep plants from being overgrazed, keep soil covered, store more water, and keep communities of life diverse, resilient, more productive, and self-regenerating?  Why aren’t we using them?
  • Can you sequester more carbon from the atmosphere with livestock?
  • How can you quickly and easily monitor the effects of your management on grassland with hard data?
  • What is Allan Savory’s holistic planned grazing?  Will it work in ‘annual’ grassland?  How will native species respond?
  • Come learn, share, and enjoy the discussion!

Facilitators:

Richard King, 25 yrs. experience in managing grassland, Certified Professional in Range Management CP99-53 (SRM), Certified Rangeland Manager #M5 (CA Board of Forestry & Fire Protection), CNGA Board member, Certified Holistic Management Educator (HMI), Accredited Field Professional, (Savory Institute), retired USDA-NRCS
