The holiday season – known as a time for love and the season of giving – comes this year at a time when wildfires, climate change, and divisiveness plague the headlines. Now more than ever, we must band together and support the common resource that impacts us all… the land beneath our feet.
To that end, Savory’s end-of-year fundraising campaign – the Season of Grazing – is underway to grow the Global Network, provide more resources to land managers, and create new initiatives such as the Land-to-Market program. We have set a goal to fundraise $100,000 by December 31st, and hundreds of supporters from around the world have already donated more than $50,000 towards the campaign, but we need your voice, your connections, and your contributions to make it across the finish line in this final stretch!
To those who have contributed, we are eternally grateful for your support. To those who have started fundraising pages and collected donations from their personal networks, your connections are invaluable. To those who have not yet made a gift, there is still time to make a meaningful impact! Please join us in this fight and help create a livable future for yourself and many generations to come.
HOLIDAY DINNER WITH NETWORK PARTNERS
On the evening of December 8th in a quaint farmhouse just outside of Boulder, Colorado, a small group of Savory partners old and new gathered to celebrate the Savory Global Network and raise funds for the coming year’s efforts. With meats and cheese sourced from an array of Hubs and local holistic producers, guests enjoyed a taste of what the Savory Network has to offer while discussing with Allan and staff the state of our grasslands, the challenges of spearheading a global paradigm shift, and the tremendous opportunities that lie ahead. Videos from producers providing the evening’s food and auction items showed first-hand the impact that Holistic Management is having on their operations, bringing the attention back to the land and showing that food can be a medium for tremendous ecological outcomes.
This simple act of sharing a meal and engaging in meaningful conversation has become a lost tradition in much of our modern society, but if the evening was any indicator of what is to come, the continued global growth of Holistic Management offers an incredible opportunity for reconnecting people to place and bringing support back to our common ground.
