The focus of this year's gathering will be on having HRM practitioners share
their experiences in a participatory type of educational setting. There will be
sessions on everything from HRM's basics to testing guidelines and innovatiove
marketing. It will feature a day of workshops and a day of touring farms in the
Rochester area. The gathering will finish up Saturday evening with a BBQ dinner
and live music.
HRM is an innovatove management process that is helping individuals, families,
businesses and whole communities improve the quality of their lives and generate
real wealth, while simultaneously restoring the environment and enhancing
biodiversity. At the heart of HRM is a revolutionary new decision-making
process, based on people's personal values, which enables them to make decisions
that are similtaneously economically, ecologically and socially responsible.
This leads to true, long term sustainability.
This year's gathering is being co-sponsored by the Minnesota-based Land
Stewardship Project and the Center for Holistic Resource Management in
Albuquerque, N. Mex.
