Bobby Gill is a good friend of mine here in denver, and I’m so excited for you all to learn from him! Bobby leads development and communications for the Savory Institute – a global non-profit facilitating the large-scale regeneration of the world’s grasslands to address the root cause of food, water, and climate security. Since 2009, the Savory Institute has influenced management on over 30 million acres of desertifying grassland through its global network of 50 regional Hubs that train and equip farmers, ranchers, and pastoralist communities to utilize the land-regenerating potential of Holistic Management within their cultural and ecological context. Savory’s new Land to Market program and Ecological Outcome Verification protocol connect verified regenerative supply to philosophically-aligned industries, bringing awareness and accessibility to products whose ecological footprint are a net positive for the planet.
In 2019 my husband, a few friends of ours and myself spent two days and one night at one of the Regenerative Agricultural, Savory-managed bison ranches here in Colorado. Bobby led us on a tour, drove us out into the field to observe these massive creatures, and taught us all about how Savory surveys the land for progressive regeneration. A memory I will never forget!
