Sign up for Holistic Management workshops and courses. Visit us on the ranch or spend time with us when we travel to your neck of the woods. We are offering a series of events, one-day workshops and multi-day courses as well as a ranch study program for those interested in learning how a holistically managed ranch operates on a day-to-day basis.
If you are interested in becoming an Accredited Professional with the Savory Institute, the courses you take through the Jefferson Center will meet your requirements. Please contact us to create a accreditation plan for you.
The workshops and courses will be intimate, with ample one-on-one time with Savory Institute field professionals out in the field and the classroom. All curriculum is accredited by the Savory Institute. Workshops are a survey of all the components of Holistic Management. The courses are in-depth and cover one module of Holistic Management per course. All courses are taught by Spencer Smith, unless otherwise noted.
