Mission: We educate people to manage land for a sustainable future.
Results: At HMI, results matter and that’s why we measure the impact of our programs. See for yourself on our Impact page, http://holisticmanagement.org/impact/
Target demographics: farmers, ranchers and land stewards
Geographic areas served: Through our direct programs and our network of Certified Holistic Management Educators, HMI has influenced farmers, ranchers and land stewards in six continents, 26 countries, and all 50 states.
Programs: Our mission is to educate people to manage land for a sustainable future. We accomplish this by delivering a variety of programs and services designed to educate and support farmers, ranchers and land stewards through Holistic Management®, a Whole Farm/Ranch Planning System that addresses the environmental, economic, and social issues farmers and ranchers face today. In our eyes, people count, healthy land is essential, and money matters
More than a decade ago I had the opportunity for exposure to HMI. What I saw impressed me in terms of impact and passion. But what really got my attention was a phrase I heard a number of times, "Saved our ranch, saved our land, saved our family." I remember telling a friend, "I'm not sure i completely understand what they do, but it is obviously very meaningful."
Twelve years later, and after three terms as a Director including three years as the Chair, I have to say that time (and the funding support I've provided) has been an exceptional investment. l can see a programmatic path that is clearer than ever, a very good governance structure and very competent and devoted staff. That translates into more vital and vibrant ranches and farms, increasing land restoration and a great deal of benefit to families and communities who depend heavily on the land and its production.
