Holistic Management with Joshua and Tara Dukart

The pre-conference workshop will happen the day before the main Montana Soil Health Symposium.

The pre-conference workshop is the afternoon of Tuesday, February 6, 2024, while the symposium runs from the morning of February 7 through lunch on February 9.

Holistic Management provides a framework for decision-making that is rooted in the fundamentals of ecosystem processes. It also provides a suite of planning procedures that includes planned grazing, land planning, financial planning, and ecological monitoring. This framework has assisted many regenerative farms and ranches with their goals and objectives, not only for production and profitability, but for healing the land, growing nutritious food, and supporting thriving communities.
