Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture
Pocantico Hills, NY
$35, includes workshop and lunch.
Ian Mitchell-Innes has been practicing holistic management for 20 years on his ranch in South Africa. He has made mistakes and wishes to share with ranchers and farmers how to avoid these costly mistakes. He teaches farmers and ranchers how to feed the whole—grass, animal, soil surface, sub soil, using animals at high and ultra high stock density (mob grazing).
We are working to develop a culture of eating based on what farms need to grow to build healthy soil and a resilient ecosystem. In our quest to transform the way America eats and farms, we convene changemakers, train farmers, educate food citizens and develop agroecological farming practices. We:
- Train beginning farmers in resilient, regenerative farming techniques.
- Help children discover the sources of their food while preparing them to steward the land that provides it.
- Increase public awareness of healthy, seasonal and sustainable food.
Our food system is on an unsustainable course: resource depletion, environmental degradation, epidemics of disease and obesity, food that doesn’t represent the true costs of its production. We are working to change the way America eats and farms by inspiring people, engaging leaders and the public, developing practices in resilient agriculture and driving choices that benefit human health and the environment. Join us!
