No, you do not need to become a Savory Hub to learn and/or practice Holistic Management. Learning and practicing Holistic Management and becoming accredited with the Savory Institute are two separate pathways. Anyone can learn Holistic Management to improve their land and livestock management – no accreditation needed!
Savory professional accreditation, however, is for those who want to take things a step further by helping others. You can become accredited as a Hub, an educator, or an EOV verifier or monitor. Each of these accreditation options is a potential career path, and a commitment, toward sharing Holistic Management with those who are starting, or continuing on their journey.
If you are interested in exploring accreditation options, join one of Savory’s monthly meetups at savory.global/meet-up.
