Get Started

Holistic Management is a values and goals based decision making process that takes into account the triple bottom line of land and livestock; finances and the human resource.

For those hoping to get a Holistic Management course in this winter, we are planning the first three days of a six-day workshop in Saskatchewan.

When & Where: March 12, 13 and 14 at Water’s Edge Eco Lodge, at Greig Lake, Saskatchewan in the Meadow Lake Provincial Park. The second session dates and location are going to be picked by the participants depending on their location and availability of dates. At this time we are able to follow current Covid guidelines, but if the regulations change we would reevaluate.

Format & Content: Through the interactive six-day course participants will learn more about the principles, practices and decision making framework of Holistic Management. Participants will:

  • work towards developing a shared vision for their operation;
  • begin creating a profitable financial plan
  • develop the land and grazing plans for their operation

As well, they will experience a number of team building exercises to build an ongoing peer learning group. The overall experience will guide participants to create successful strategies best suited for their unique operation.

Instruction Time: 6-day course.

Cost: $1,800 per farm unit. This training is eligible for ASK funding through Sask Ag

Meet the Instructors: The training will be led by certified educator Kelly Sidoryk and supported by HM Certified Educators in training, Deanne and John Chuiko and Bluesette Campbell.

Kelly Sidoryk ranches with her family near Lloydminster, Sask./Alta. Over 25 years ago they were introduced to Holistic Resource Management (as it was known at the time), a decision making/planning process that focusses on finances, land and people.  She completed the certification program through HRM with a focus on the people side. In addition to running their family business, she has worked with many farm families as they work on transitioning to the next generation. She also teaches Holistic Management Whole/Farm Ranch Planning courses and is a certified educator with Holistic Management International(HMI). Currently, she is past-chair of the HMI board.

Bluesette Campbell and her husband, Mark, run a 4000-acre ranch as a 700-cow/calf and long yearling operation along with Mark’s brother, Scott.  They are third generation Campbells with the intergenerational transition to the fourth just around the corner.  Their family ranch has been managed holistically for over 30 years with Bluesette being a part for the past 20+.  It is stated in their 3-part holistic goal that ideas and expereriences are shared with others in the community, therefore, as Don Campbell did before her, Bluesette is in the process of becoming a Certified Educator so she can teach what has brought her family much success in agriculture. She currently sits as a Director on the HM Canada Board and the annual conference committee.

Deanne and John Chuiko ranch in NW Saskatchewan with their two kids, Matt & Rylee.  They took Holistic Management in 2016 and have implemented HM practices into all aspects of their life.  They are always open to learning and finding new ways to make their lives and business better.  This is what led them down the HM Educator path.
