27-30 November 2017: Ecological Outcomes Verification Training
Our EOV training was a major achievement in many ways. We trained nearly 40
people in EOV in four days. We had Byron Shelton from the Savory Institute
coming from the USA to conduct the training. Now we have seven HM Educators
trained as Hub Verifiers, and as a world first, we have nearly 20 producers
trained as Field Monitors. All this means we have the building blocks for an
