Spring 2019: HAWL Tetbury

Spring 2019: HAWL Tetbury

 

This was our fifty-first HAWL course and it was fully booked with a waiting list ready for the next one. It is most gratifying to see how word of mouth from farmer to farmer encourages new participants on the course. It is not just because we tell people it is a good course, it is because farmers who attend the course get tremendous value from it.

The premise is simple. “To promote the concept and practice of holistic farming systems which enhance the health and wellbeing of soil, plants, animals and people”. All good. 

 

WHAg was set up in 2018 to create a broad approach to agriculture that looks at the whole. We were well aware of the good work done by organisations such as the Soil...

We are what we eat

We are what we eat

 

A friend of mine had a good theory for how he approached his nutrition.  It was a three step approach. The first step was easy:

  • Eat anything you want

It was the second two steps that would take a bit of work:

  • Then tune in to how you feel afterwards. 

  • And ask yourself why you chose to eat it.

 

The premise of the whole approach was very straight...

Lifepath for Cats

 

How Holistic is your cat’s Lifepath looking? Do you have the Green Level supported with well crafted husbandry, a great lifestyle and a wonderful diet? Are you aware of the borders of the Green Level and know what to look out for should your cat go off the path and head toward the Amber Level? Do you know how to tell that your cat is going from the Amber and...

A new puppy! Always an exciting experience, full of optimism and promise. Many wonderful possibilities for training and development, having lots of fun, as well as all number of naughty puppy escapades. Aside from all these amazing experiences, the growing up stage is an opportunity to create some great foundations for the adult life to come.

BARF for Dogs

 

It all started for me about fifteen years ago.  I would see clients coming in for one problem or another on a regular basis. The various problems all cleared up with the treatments given, but a few months later they could recur again. Again they cleared up with treatment, but similarly they recurred a short while later. Some of you may be familiar with this ...

How Holistic is your dog’s Lifepath looking? Are you managing the Green Level with well crafted husbandry, plenty of lovely walks, great socialisation, and a wonderful diet? Are you tuned into the borders of the Green Level and know what to look out for should your dog go off the path and head toward the Amber Level? Do you know how to tell that you are moving out...

Happy New Year

 

A new year and a new start.  And what better way to start the new year than to kit yourself out with the tools to help keep your animals happy, healthy and vibrant?

 

The essence of the Holistic Lifepath approach is to to understand your animal’s life as part of an ongoing journey from birth to death - their Lifepath. Then you are in a much better position...

Happy New Year…

Decorating your tree

 

As you start to decorate your tree, think about the way that the individual decorations fit upon the structure of the tree. This is a bit like the way we choose specific things to do for our animals (the decorations) and the way that they make so much more sense when we have an underlying framework (the tree). 

 

As you move toward 2019 and...

HAWL in Ireland

 

Finally the day had arrived of our first HAWL course outside the UK. It was time to head to Cork for the first Irish HAWL course. As it happened it was also our fiftieth HAWL course. What a way to celebrate. 

 

We have been running courses since 2001 and the word had been getting round. I guess it was only a matter of time before we went abroad. We had run one...
