In the last week or so Joel Salatin's 'Local Farms & Community' (http://www.regenag.com/workshops/polyface/) RegenAG tour in NZ went great with 100 turning up for the seminar in Ashhurst, 200 at Napier and another 70 for the 2 day workshop at Mangarara Station in Hawkes Bay. Tonight Joel wowed an audience of over 415, packing the house in Sydney for the 1st of his Australian RegenAG events.
In its first year RegenAG (a non-profit public company limited by guarantee) will have trained over 850 participants in its 'Holistic Management', 'BioFertile Farms', 'Keyline Farming' & 'Local Farms & Community' modules plus over 1200 people in short seminars both in Australia and NZ. In 2011 we will have an expanded list of modules available with more of the world's great Regenerative Agriculture practitioners. Our model will also expand into the EU (including Germany and the UK), plus Mexico and the US over 2011/12.
