On July 7th Jodi Roebuck from @roebuckfarm in New Zealand will be joining us @williesmithsappleshed in the Huon Valley to share all he has learnt about how to run a profitable small scale market garden.

Come along and hear first hand about the way he runs Roebuck Farm to ensure it is sustainable and profitable.

Holistic decision making - 29th July & 2nd August

This is a two part ONLINE workshop hosted by Dan Palmer.

Part 1 - Clarifying your core values (29th July)

This session dives deep to uncover and clarify what matters most to you in your life and business.  We’ll move beyond your problems and even your goals to articulate where you really want to be heading and the quality of life you’d like to enjoy as you head there, all with a sizzling clarity so deeply true you may notice your spine tingling. Through a series of interactive activities that cut directly to the chase, you’ll leave this session with a solid start on a context you can then use as a north star to elevate your daily decision making to a whole new level.


Part 2 - Making better decisions (2nd August)

This session focuses on an approach to making daily decisions that are whole-oriented and whole-honouring. We'll experience in detail what it means to move from deciding reactively to fix parts or solve problems to deciding proactively directly toward what matters most to you. Before this session ends you'll have a chance to practice testing real decisions toward your unique context using a set of testing questions adapted from Allan Savory's pioneering work with Holistic Management. We'll also learn how to monitor the outcomes of your decisions for early course-correction and how to use Holistic Decision Making to have kick-ass team meetings that focus on what most needs attention now.


Offline group work

In between these two sessions, we will arrange to group attendees together (say 2-4 people in each) and enable you to exchange your thoughts, ideas, core values and generally just be a sounding board for each other ready for the final session with Dan.
