Ready to make a difference in the world?
Introductory Class is a stand-alone class for decision-makers and practitioners interested in understanding the conceptual overview of what the problem is, how we got here, and how we can fix it.
Are you ready to change your perception of how we look at the land? How we take care of it? How we value our land that is our home?
Are you looking to prevent wildfires, manage noxious weeds, regenerate depleted land, improve soil health including its water holding capacity?
Become a participant of our Goats Work! Introductory Class.
It is for all levels of landowners and managers, tribal landowners, federal, state, and public national state parks land managers, plus those who approve land treatments, philanthropists, community HOAs, and entrepreneurs who want to start a professional grazier business.
The solution? Professionally managed goat herds
Goats Work! Introductory Class paints the big picture of how we U.S. citizens with our current land practices and policies and the unintended consequences, find ourselves at a crucial time where we must question how we value land. We have cornered ourselves into the vast problems of fire mitigation, water shortage crisis, land degradation, erosion, carbon sequestration, weed issues, water disasters, soil depletion, pollution, plant species shift, etc.
We are facing rapid climate change with an increasing human population, warmer temperatures, and less water to work with. It’s unknown how to proceed. The plant species that can survive are unknown to us now.
We have hope; healing begins in the soil.
There is little time to make big and necessary changes.
A solution and opportunity exist where we can support a different outcome with managed animal herds such as professional goat grazing.
Founded by Lani Malmberg of Goats Eat Weeds, the Goats Work! Introductory Class looks at the conceptual overview of what the problem is, how we got here, and how we can fix it.
We can reshape landscapes that have been negatively impacted by natural events and man-made causes.
Goat-powered landscaping to heal the soil
This class is a stand-alone introductory class that presents a conceptual overview to us understand. The takeaway philosophy is how to use a large traveling goat herd to:
- Prevent wildfires
- Increase water quality and quantity
- Eat unwanted vegetation and recycle it to natural fertilizer
- Rejuvenate and balance soil microbes
- Encourage plant species diversity
- Re-shape landscapes impacted by human activities and extreme weather events
Participants will be offered a broad overview and a basic outline of how work may be accomplished with professionally managed goats. This introductory class is for those who:
- Own or manage land
- Manage public lands and are responsible for designing treatments
- Entrepreneurs who want to begin our 2-year Goats Work! Boot Camp to become a certified professional grazier
- Philanthropists who want to financially support:
- The general fund
- A specific project
- A specific student(s) through Boot Camp
- A student(s) scholarship
- A specific land area
- A specific watershed
- A specific vegetation problem
- Retrieving atmospheric carbon
- Address regenerative ag reskilling our workforce
- You decide
- Get creative
Class participants may gain a comprehensive overview of:
- The problem with how we perceive land ownership and stewardship
- The problem with how we perceive land and value Earth as our home
- The problems we face and how we got into this predicament
- How we can address these problems by quickly moving forward
- Simple solutions available now
We recognize the above five categories and bring perspective to each participant’s local land problem.
We learn together as we shift this paradigm.
Goats Work! Boot Camp
Sneak peek: From each of these introductory classes, we expect to attract a handful of participants that will then sign up for our 2-year Goats Work! Boot Camp to become a professional grazier, certified by us. Boot Camp will be 7 days each, 5 times/year in all seasons on 10 different jobs for 10 different client types, in 5 different states.
This Introductory Class is a prerequisite for Goats Work! Boot Camp beginning Fall 2021. Read more >
