Event description


Cultivating Community: Land, Food, Health

Cultivating Community: Land, Food, Health is no ordinary conference! HMI invites you to beautiful Paicines Ranch in Paicines, California for our 2016 Gathering. Let’s grow together through a field day at the innovative ranch, fine dining, farm-fresh local foods and workshops on numerous sustainable topics that matter to you, making this an event you won’t forget.

Connect with innovative, solution-oriented and passionate farmers, ranchers, conservationists, authors, natural food/health professionals and our own Holistic Management community. Our special keynote speaker, “America’s Most Famous Farmer” himself, Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms, will be sure to inspire us all.

Cultivating Community: Land, Food, Health will kick off on October 14th with an Open Gate field day to highlight the Holistic Management practices that have been implemented at Paicines Ranch, a demonstration site for Holistic Management and regenerative agriculture. Thought-provoking presentations and breakout sessions on various consumer and producer interests will take place on October 15th and 16th.

What to Expect

It’s all about supporting regenerative agriculture, building stronger communities and learning through our ranch field day and sessions. In between sessions, you’ll have time to catch up with old friends and make some new ones. Throughout these 3 days we’ll feed your senses with rich conversation, nutritious and delicious local food, beautiful landscapes, entertainment and a silent auction.
