Review of Reverse Pioneers by TexasRealFood
Reverse Pioneers is owned by people describing themselves primarily as “permaculturists and holistic management practitioners”. Their main goal is to reverse the damage on their dry and brittle temperate grassland while providing for human needs. They studied permaculture design in Thailand and have been implementing those practices on their 12 acres, and it shows. Both of them hope to incorporate art, culture, education, and entertainment into the farm to reconnect people to their natural landscapes. It’s these sort of reverse trends they’re after that give them their name. Some of their products include different types of microgreens, pea shoots and quail eggs. You may email them or contact them via phone to know more about their farm produce.CSA Boxes available through Central Texas Farmers Coop.
Coined by Alan Savory, holistic management is an approach to managing resources in an agricultural setting. The term Holistic Management is trademarked to the Holistic Management International organization. At its core, the approach focuses mainly on livestock grazing in a way that is similar to cyclical grazing. This method means livestock are moved frequently from pasture to pasture, allowing for short periods of disturbance, followed by rest periods to allow for the grasslands to regenerate. Beyond grazing practices, Holistic Management also encompasses guidelines for decision making through six indicators: define what you are managing, define what you want now and for the future, watch for the earliest indicators of ecosystem health, don’t limit the management tools you use, test your decisions with questions, and monitor proactively. Additionally, Holistic Management relies on four principles. These are: that nature functions as a holistic community, that any agricultural practice must be adaptable to nature’s complexity, animal husbandry of domesticated species can be used as a substitute for a lost keystone species, and that time and timing is the most important factor in planning land use.
A set of design principles centered on whole systems thinking, simulating, or directly utilizing the patterns and resilient features observed in natural ecosystems. The term was coined by David Holmgren and Bill Mollison in 1978, and originally meant “permanent agriculture” but has expanded to include “permanent culture”. Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature, and thinking of plants and animals as multi-faceted rather than treating them as single product systems.
