Join us April 29, 9am-4pm for the Green Gate Farms Day, part of HMI’s Open Gate Learning Series. Open Gates are peer-to-peer action-based learning days with short presentations and small group exercises geared for participants to share discoveries and management techniques with guidance from experienced facilitators and producers.
Since 1984, HMI has helped communities grow and thrive by educating family farmers and ranchers and pastoralists in regenerative agricultural practices that empower them to strengthen their businesses, produce healthier food, improve local wildlife habitats and protect the environment. Their mission is to educate people in regenerative agriculture for healthy land and thriving communities.
Presenters include Peggy Sechrist from Holistic Management, Skip Connett & Erin Flynn, Green Gate Farm Owners, Ronda Rutledge the Executive Director of Sustainable Food Center • Robert Maggiani from NCAT (National Center for Appropriate Technology), and Edwin Marty, a Food Policy Manager for the City of Austin.
In addition to Erin & Skip’s story and tour of the farm, there will be a wonderful in-depth discussion about the benefits and challenges of neighborhood farms. The lunch will be lovingly made by Andria Millie from Culvito Catering from pork and vegetables grown at Green Gate Farm.
