Ortensi Farm 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.
Holistic Management works with nature, not against it. We will discuss planet and animal-friendly management techniques that lead to richer soil, improved water containment, nutrient-dense food, more successful farms and ranches, and thriving communities.
At the Ortensi Farm Day, you will...
Lunch (included in price) will be by the excellent chefs at Celebrate Origins Cafe, well-known for locally sourced foods cooked to perfection. The menu includes beef chili, sweet potato black bean chili, corn bread and kale salad.
This is a rain or shine event. We will be spending parts of the day out on the land, and boots or other enclosed protective footwear, as well as long pants, are recommended. Please bring your own water bottle.
Come and be a part of this on-the-ground learning day, connect with others who care about a healthy food system and help strengthen your local communities. Because we ALL have a stake in the way our food is grown.
