What was the first thing you did when you woke up this morning? Maybe you opened a window to breath in the fresh morning air?
Then what did you do? Hop into the shower; brush your teeth; turn on the coffee pot? I’ll bet the smell of coffee made you hungry, so maybe you cooked up breakfast. Scrambled eggs? Oatmeal, maybe? Or just some toast and butter?
Fresh air to breathe.
Fresh, clean water for bathing and drinking.
Fresh, healthy food to eat.
Those are three good reasons to care about regenerative agriculture – and the practice of Holistic Management. HMI’s mission is to teach farmers and ranchers how to manage land sustainably using the Holistic Management methodology in order to promote land health, productivity, and profitability. Holistic Management improves air quality by reducing pollutants, while increasing the amount of carbon sequestered; conserves water, while providing water catchment opportunities; and helps farmers and ranchers produce healthy foods, and raise healthy livestock without the use of unnecessary antibiotics, hormones, fertilizers, and other chemicals.
Holistic Management training can positively impact the number of small, sustainably managed farms and ranches; decreasing the need for industrial and factory farms.
