Description

Helping Water Flow Where it Needs to Go

Our Circle Ranch Day is part of HMI’s Open Gate Learning Series. Open Gates are peer-to-peer action-based learning days with short presentations and small group exercises geared for participants to share discoveries and management techniques with guidance from experienced facilitators and producers.

Whether you are an agricultural producer, land steward, local agency representative, or just interested in how to produce healthy land, animals, and food, this is a day for you.

Come and be a part of this on-the-ground learning day, enjoy nutritious, fresh food and help strengthen local foodsheds. Because we all have a stake in the way our food is grown.
