Holistic Management and Mob Grazing Workshop
December 1, 2017 @ 09:00 - 16:30
Looking at various ways to regenerate their landscape in the most effective way possible; the owners at Bramleigh Manor came across many references to holistic management and the decision making framework that accompanies those practices.
As part of their “Putting Carbon Back in its Place” series; Bramleigh Manor will be hosting world-renowned expert and holistic management educator, Ian Mitchell-Innes, for a 1 Day Workshop in Holistic Management and Mob Grazing.
Mob grazing involves moving cattle at least daily between small paddocks, sized to match the number of grazing cattle, and split by portable electric fence.
Participants can expect a valuable workshop on farming regeneratively, and working with nature to build soil fertility and animal health. The topics covered will add value in almost any context.
Bramleigh Manor is an eco-training venue and country guesthouse, situated on a start up, small scale working organic farm in the picturesque KwaZulu-Natal Midlands near the village of Nottingham Road. The entire estate is tailored to guests who want to disconnect from the world for a while and be replenished with inspiration and creativity.
The indigenous forest is the perfect place to appreciate nature and its intricately designed systems of flora and fauna, with over 200 species of birds, and age old Yellowwood trees.
Bramleigh Manor aims to popularise ideas such as organic farming, closed system growing (e.g. aquaponics), solar power, eco-friendly building, homesteading, nature conservation, and environmental awareness. Courses, training and experiences in the above mentioned ideas are on offer, as well as comfortable eco-friendly accommodation for those needing to disconnect from the world for a while and reconnect with nature.
