It was a full room motivated to learn about how we can adapt to climate change and recover soil productivity.
In this free workshop promoted by Territorial Program +SOLO +VIDA we filled the 15 available places with the participation of partner farmers placed in Parque Natural do Vale do Guadiana. There was also technicians from entities that provide support to the farmers, such as ACOS, TREVO and ADPM and other farmers that develop their activity in the proximity of Mértola and Serpa, regions included in this project.
The 1st module was dedicated to Holistic Management. Complementarily and the 2nd module took place in the field, giving participants the opportunity to apply some of the knowledge acquired, such as grazing economic planning and the development of a decision-making strategy for about cattle and livestock management.
This model, initiated by Allan Savory, has been disseminated in the south of the Iberian Peninsula as a strategy to combat desertification.
Focusing on the creation of value for farmers, it aims to restore the vitality of the soils, as well as the productive capacity of the pastures. An healthy soil contributes to CO2 retention and reduces the dependence on external resources.
To lead this workshop we had specialists in Regenerative Grazing and Holistic Management of the association ALEJAB-Manejo Holístico, representing the Iberian core Savory Institute. Learn more here.
