This stand-alone class is a conceptual overview of past land practices & policies and their unintended consequences, with a focus on how we need to move forward in climate change with increasing human population, record high temperatures, extreme weather events, more fires, extended drought, and less available freshwater.
This online Goats Work Introductory Class is for those who:
- Own or manage land
- Manage public lands and are responsible for designing treatments
- Entrepreneurs who want to later begin Goatapelli Foundation’s 2-year Goats Work Boot Camp to become a certified Goatapelli goat grazier
- Support for the above 3 categories
Class participants at these levels are given a comprehensive overview of how we perceive land stewardship, how we got to the problems we face, how we can fix them and move forward in climate change, with an appreciation for the complexity.
We plan for all class participants together to bring perspective to each role, see what each needs to be most successful as we tackle our local challenges on the land. Philanthropists, goat herders, landowners, and managers learn together as we shift this paradigm. Lectures will be interspersed with walks-a-bout on landscapes to observe and trigger lively discussions.
This class is a prerequisite for all Goatapelli’s higher-level training courses; Internships, Apprenticeships, and Boot Camp.
