Ecosystem Regeneration Artisans presents its first three day intensive!
A camping retreat with the focus on education and community building.

>Meals provided by our generous hosts and sourced their farm, Purple Pastures!<

This is an event for people interested in learning about ethical food systems while implementing animal grazing techniques that regenerate rough Texan soils.

Appropriately managed pastures pull greenhouse gases like CO2 out of the atmosphere and deposit carbon into the soil, where it improves water retention and soil fertility helping us regenerate our land while reversing desertification.
