Savory Institute International Conference – “Putting Grasslands to Work” – London UK 2014

Jul 14, 2014 1 Comment by

The Savory Institute has strong ties with Feasta: Allan Savory delivered the Feasta annual lecture in 2009. Partly as a result of this and of Richard Douthwaite’s subsequent recommendation, he went on to win the Buckminster Fuller award in 2010.

Dynamic experts in the fields of soil science, climate change, permaculture, range science, local food movement, human health, conservation biology and alternative finance will present their views at this conference. These world renowned experts include Patrick Holden of the Sustainable Food Trust, celebrity farmer Joel Salatin, world-renowned permaculture consultant Darren Doherty, and soil scientist Dr. Elaine Ingham, and author Judith Schwartz. Holistic Management sits firmly focused at the centre ­ linking everything together.

    Is there any decent critical response around to Monbiot’s criticism of Savory? http://www.monbiot.com/2014/08/04/eat-meat-and-save-the-world/
