Learn How Food and Fiber Choices Will Affect the Future of the Planet

Visit the Lazy R Ranch where the Robinette family has been practicing regenerative agriculture for over 20 years. Learn how Holistic Management practitioners around the world are restoring soil and taking climate-damaging CO2 out of the atmosphere.

This field day is part of the Savory Network Global Event.

Field Day and Panel Discussions: Meat, Dairy, Wool, and Leather

You will see a demonstration of the new Land-to-Market program being developed by the Savory Institute to launch in 2017. Producers who sign up for this program will have verifiable monitoring data. They will be able to track how their practices actually improve the soil. They will get data on ecosystem functions so they can improve the carbon cycle, water cycle, species diversity, and other ecosystem functions.

Manufacturers, retailers, and consumers will have scientifically-verifiable assurance that products were produced using practices that are not just sustainable but regenerative.

Meet Producers from Around the World and the Pacific Northwest

The field day will feature four short videos on regeneratively-produced fiber, beef, dairy, and leather. Each video will be followed by a panel discussion with local producers or end-product users.

Learn About Holistic Production of Meat, Dairy, Fiber, and Leather

The format will be a focus on four areas of holistic production: meat, dairy, fiber and leather. We’ll show a video on each topic, followed by a speaker or a panel, with time for audience discussion.

In the field, the Robinette family will talk about the Lazy R demonstration site and show a monitoring site set up for the Land to Market Program.

The Field Day will take place at the Lazy R Ranch, which is a Roots of Resilience learning site. The Lazy R is in Cheney, WA, near Spokane.
