White Oak Pastures is Savory Institute 2015 Hub Candidate
White Oak Pastures is one of nine organizations nominated as a 2015 Hub candidate by the Savory Institute, an international, U.S.-based nonprofit that promotes large-scale restoration of the world’s grasslands through holistic management. White Oak Pastures and the other eight Hub candidates expand the roster of 20 Savory Network Hubs already providing holistic management education and support to land managers in their region. The Savory Network Hubs represent 17 countries on all six habitable continents. As a Hub candidate, White Oak Pastures will send staff to participate in advanced holistic management training, a leadership boot camp at the Africa Centre for Holistic Management in Zimbabwe and participate in October’s Savory Institute International Conference slated for San Francisco. Sustainable land stewardship is a core value at White Oak Pastures. The multigenerational family farm in Bluffton, Georgia practices the Serengeti Grazing Model, rotating complementary animals through its pastures.
