Green Participant Landing Area

What you will find in the ‘Green’ section of this site

The “Green” section specifically focuses on the biological aspects of integrating land and livestock management.

If you have previously attended a course presented by Holistic Results, you will recognise that much of the material is a worthwhile ‘refresher’.  If you are new to the process, we recommend that you work through this section sequentially, in order of the links below.


You must have a copy of Adobe Flash Player to play audio and video works. http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/  (The audio and video is unavailable on iPads and iPhones as they do not support Flash)


If you have queries, please check the
FAQ’s, and the Glossary or better still, what we would really like you to do is go to the Forum, and use it.
