February Monthly Potluck & Meeting – Thursday February 21, 2013

Our February potluck and meeting will focus on Holistic Management.

Widely popularized by farmer Joel Salatin, Holistic Management is a decision making system created by biologist Allan Savory over the last 40 years.  Savory created the system as a response to the widespread desertification caused by overgrazing which he was witnessing all over Africa.  Since its initial trials, it has spread throughout the world, as farmers and ranchers started adopting his system for sustainable food production.

Saskatchewan and other prairie provinces in particular are starting to adopt this method of farming as a way to build topsoil, store carbon, improve animal care and rejuvenate water cycles.  Come join us at our next potluck to find out more about what’s happening in Saskatchewan to improve our farming practices to benefit people and the environment! PRI Sask members Jessie Best and Shaun Abs, who have recently participated in a Holistic Management workshop, will make a presentation and lead the discussion.

Hope to see you there on –  Thursday February 21,at the Unitarian Centre, 213 Second Street East

The doors will be open about 6:00 pm, and we’ll set up and be ready to eat by about 6:30 or so.

After the potluck Jessie &  Shaun will tell us about holistic management.  Everyone welcome.
