We invite you to join us for Savory Institute’s Annual International Conference, this year to be held in London on Aug 1st and 2nd. This central location will allow our partners and collaborators from around the globe be able to join us to contribute to this special event. The theme of our conference is: Dirty Conversations, Putting Grasslands to Work. We want to spotlight grasslands for all their underappreciated beauty and value. We also want to foster conversations around the unifying language of the land that bridges all cultures.

The age of Holistic Management is upon us. Our movement has reached critical mass and is exploding all around the globe. Holistic Planned Grazing is currently being practiced on every habitable continent.  We’re seeing lands of all types dramatically improve, with increased soil organic matter, water holding capacity, and plant biodiversity. The Savory Institute is currently doing restoration projects with governments around the globe including China, Turkey, UAE, and Kuwait (UN Project). We also have a network of learning sites in Argentina, Mexico (multiple), South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, The United States (multiple), and Zimbabwe. We’re about to announce the launching of another wave of global learning sites in the next couple of months and have set a goal of having 100 of these sites by 2025. Our sister organization Grasslands LLC works with investors interested in both large-acreage real estate holdings and regenerative agriculture. Currently there are properties in: The Northern Great Plains (multiple), New Zealand, and Hawaii. Those projects alone account for hundreds of thousands of acres all under Holistic Planned Grazing. We are partnered with The Nature Conservancy on projects in China, Patagonia, and Colorado. We’ve received a formal endorsement from HRH Prince Charles, who is very active in the realm of sustainable agriculture. And of the the thousands of applicants, we’re one of the 11 remaining finalist of the Virgin - Earth Challenge, a $25 million prize to whoever can demonstrate a global-scale climate solution.

So come meet our global partners face to face and celebrate with us as we enter a new era of hope for humanity centered around saving the world’s grasslands.
