  • Online, Asynchronous
  • Some live-online discussion/collaboration time TBD
  • Course Fee: $650
  • Deadline: October 11
This course provides an introduction to management approaches that focus on the interactions and synergies of ecosystem processes (energy flow, water, nutrient cycles, and community dynamics) to leverage the power of photosynthesis to improve water use efficiency and soil health across a variety of agro-ecosystems using appropriate production practices.

Soil Health Systems
January 24–March 4, 2022

  • Online, Asynchronous
  • Some live-online discussion/collaboration time TBD
  • Course Fee: $650
  • Register Today Deadline: January 17
This course discusses the connection between soil health and primary productivity and, ultimately, food and fiber quality. This course will cover soil properties, metrics of soil health, and influences of production practices and soil management systems (integrated practices) on these components. Soil sampling, analysis and interpretation are presented, along with monitoring strategies to ensure on-farm success.

Science & Practice of Ecological Forest and Range Management
March 21–April 29, 2022

  • Online, Asynchronous
  • Some live-online discussion/collaboration time TBD
  • Course Fee: $650
  • Register Today Deadline: March 14
This course explores two complex and complimentary agro-ecological systems through sustainable management PROJECT NARRATIVE, Creating the Agricultural Management Systems Learning Collaborative (PI: C. Daley) 14 practices. Innovative and practical approaches to livestock grazing, timber production, wildlife habitat, fuels management and other fire prevention and fire recovery strategies for balanced management to support ecosystem and economic resiliency.

Farm/Ranch Planning and Design

  • Online, Asynchronous
  • Some live-online discussion/collaboration time TBD
  • Course Fee: $650
  • Register Today Deadline: May 30
This course supports the transitional process to a plan, implement, monitor, replan management framework that encourages producers and ag professionals to work through a systems lens that addresses economic success and improved land health. Participants will develop a vision that incorporates management goals, establish a land management plan, and identify metrics to quantify outcomes and reassess their plan annually.
