NEATs Northern Co-Hort is hosting Steve Kenyon to offer Two custom 2 day Regenerative Grazing Schools on March 2 & 3 or 2 & 4, 2020 at the Northern Grand Hotel in Fort St John, BC. Workshops run 9-4 Daily.
Steve Kenyon was welcomed twice to the Peace Region in 2019, connecting with over 100 Peace Region ranchers who attended his workshops to learn about his philosophies and practices around regenerative agriculture using the intensive grazing method. The following grazing schools have been tailored based on the feedback received from producers who took the time to complete our survey.
Join Steve this March for two days of workshops as he goes deeper into the concepts and principles of regenerative grazing to support your creation of a cell design and water system specific to your ranch!
Day 1 | March 2 | Join all workshop attendees and fellow Peace Region ranchers for a Full Day Grazing School with Steve Kenyon & hear from local producers who practice rotational grazing in the Peace Region
Day 2 | March 3 or 4 | Workshop attendees choose Tues March 2 or Wed March 3 to create smaller groups for a collaborative hands on workshop facilitated by Steve to complete a cell design and water system specific to your ranch *reminder to print and bring an aerial map of your ranch/operation
*Aaron MacKay, our Regional Resource Agrologist with the MOA has offered to support producers who are unfamiliar with or do not have the technical expertise for pulling up aerial images of their ranch.
