Stonewall Farm was selected to become a HUB within the prestigious Savory Institute’s Global HUB Network. The mission of the Savory Institute is the large-scale regeneration of the world’s grasslands through Holistic Management to address the global issues of desertification, climate change and food and water insecurity. Livestock, when properly managed, are key to healthy pastures and grasslands. Benefits of properly managed livestock include:
- HEALTHY GRASSLANDS absorb and store carbon in soils
- HEALTHY GRASSLANDS teem with water and a biodiversity of species
- HEALTHY GRASSLANDS provide nutritious, healthy foods
- GRASSLANDS create economic abundance for farmers and ranchers
The Savory Global Network is a thriving global community working to advance regenerative agriculture. The network consists of regional HUBs, accredited professionals and members. Hubs are Holistic Management training, learning and demonstration sites. Together, they are a global network of entrepreneurial people who are driven to create abundance for the people and places of their region and in their context. It is through Savory Global hubs that Holistic Management education, training, events, special projects, consulting, research, and experiences are conducted in a region.
As the business HUB serving all New England, Stonewall Farm provides, training, consulting and resources for people interested in learning more about holistic management or becoming an accredited professional. We are the only dairy HUB in all North America.
“Having visited and spent time with Julie and the team at Stonewall Farm, as well as enjoying their company in Zimbabwe, I am excited to have Stonewall join our growing global Holistic Management hub network. There is no question that rapid development of holistically managed regenerative agriculture is imperative if our civilization is to survive globally. There is also increasing awareness that the fastest way to develop regenerative agriculture, while also addressing global desertification and climate change will be through massive collaboration as is happening between many people and regenerative organizations in this growing network of concerned and caring people.
Welcome aboard and full steam ahead!”
Allan Savory, Co-Founder of The Savory Institute
