The Savory Institute offers a number of different learning approaches depending on the goals and interests of the individual learner. Below are some of the different ways you may want to consider on your Holistic Management learning journey:
In-Person Courses or 1:1 Consulting (preferred)
This is the preferred way to learn Holistic Management since it includes fieldwork and you get immediate and contextual feedback from an instructor, both of which are invaluable to understanding the principles and planning procedures of Holistic Management
As part of their efforts to equip more people with the power of Holistic Management, a number of Savory Hubs offer in-person training events and/or 1-on-1 consulting. Offerings may range in delivery format, structure, and cost depending on locality, but the overall Holistic Management content will be the same since all Hubs and their educators are accredited through the Savory Institute and are using the same, most up-to-date curriculum.
To find an in-person course or event, a list of Savory Hubs, their location, and links to their websites and course offerings can be found on this page. Additionally, check out the Savory Events Calendar where in-person events hosted by Hubs are often posted. Prices vary depending on which training and Savory Hub you choose.
Offered by Savory Hubs
As part of their work, a number of Savory Hubs also offer online courses and training. Much like the in-person offerings, the online training ranges from general Holistic Management principles to preparing learners for a career in Holistic Management. These courses vary from self-paced and asynchronous learning, to synchronous learning. A list of Savory Hubs and links to their websites and online course offerings can be found on this page.

These courses are hosted on a modern learning platform called Teachable and can be purchased as a bundle or individually in the Savory online store. Individual courses are USD $99, and the entire five-course bundle is USD $399. These courses are for land managers seeking to manage land regeneratively, teams who are changing their approach to management, consumers looking to make educated choices, and stewards of our environment. Individuals who purchase these courses have access to live support sessions that occur twice monthly.
*Note: Savory's online courses do not include the planning procedures of Holistic Planned Grazing, Holistic Financial Planning, Holistic Land Planning, and Ecological Monitoring. More information about what Savory's online courses cover can be found here.
Textbooks and eBooks
In addition to online and in-person courses, Holistic Management can also be learned directly through the Holistic Management Handbook and Textbook (if so, we strongly recommend reading the textbook first to learn the why and then the handbook for the how). Both of these books can be purchased through Savory's online store.
