LONDON - June 30, 2014 - PRLog -- The Savory Institute’s prime objective is highlighting the world’s grasslands for their immense environmental value and unprecedented beauty. We look to foster a conversation around the common language of these lands, one that transcends race and culture.

Allan Savory’s methods involve practical, achievable farming/management procedures, applicable and viable for those tending the land and accompanying grazing livestock to heal our world. From Africa to Patagonia, the U.S. to the Middle East, the groundbreaking techniques gained from his many years observing the vast grazing herds on Africa’s grasslands have been honed and made relevant for sites

Savory remarked, “Without agriculture it is not possible to have a city, stock market, banks, university,church or army. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization and any stable economy.” The masses want a secure future for their children, prosperous and visually pleasing landscapes, safe and plentiful food plus a deep personal connection with nature. The population must be sustained whilst caring for the very medium that supports us all, the soil itself. Proponents of Holistic Management are unified by a love of the earth, a desire to understand, respect for nature's many changing rhythms and cycles and the abundant life held in a mere handful of soil.

HRH Prince Charles, “He {Allan} has since shown so graphically, the land needs the presence of feeding animals, if you take grazers off the land and lock them away in vast feedlots, the land dies.” As the movement reaches a critical mass and ignites all around the globe, we aim to make London 2014 remembered as the time we truly reached out and touched the entire world.

We’ve put together what we believe is an unprecedented speaker line­up packed with star presenters. 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. 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.
