Foundations of Holistic Management
The solution to climate change, drought resilience, food security, and financial viability lies in our approach to management. At Savory, we believe the solution to these pressing world issues is that management of our land, livestock, and people must be holistic.
Holistic Management uses decision-making and planning processes that give people the insights and management tools needed to work with the web of complexity that exists in nature; resulting in better, more informed decisions that balance social, environmental, and financial considerations.
