  • Description

    Description

    We are a group of Savory Field Professionals looking at ways to regenerate the vast areas of degraded farm land in Western Australia, using Holistic Planned Grazing and intensive herding and moving livestock to generate impack and change.

    We are filming and documenting the process and outcomes for research and a Regenerative Agriculture case study.

    A second stage will be a longer project later in the year in the WA Murchison region on a pastoral lease with a larger herd and horses.

    The long term plan is to go droving on one of the traditional WA stock routes, such as the Canning Stock Route, with the focus being on regenerating the land as we go.
