About: Faculty: Gwyneth Harris & Jenn Colby; featuring Sarah Flack & Judith D. Schwartz
Livestock, humans, and grasslands have co-evolved for more than 10,000 years. Modern farming techniques can capitalize on this relationship to feed our livestock, heal our landscapes, sequester carbon in our soils, and create ecologically sound, humane farming systems.
Join Sterling Farm Manager Gwyneth Harris and the Vermont Pasture Network’s Jen Colby to explore grazing systems and techniques. Together, we will look at the ecology of grasslands, savannahs, and woodlands, and the place of livestock animals in their development and maintenance.
