Review for Holistic Management International (HMI), Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to deepen the program development which is poised to bear even greater fruit.
