5-14 August 2016 — Lakeside School at Black Kettle Farm – 6 Leaning Road. Essex, New York 12936
In the world of workshops & courses there is nothing quite like the #Regrarians 10 day Integrated Farm Planning Convention or #REX. A carefully crafted distillation of the world’s greatest and most effective methodologies, the #REX is designed for nothing less than effective outcomes. People are participants, not ‘attendees’ or ‘students’ at a #REX such is the integrity of the course model for its inclusive approach. Following the Regrarians Ltd. already renowned & highly respected #RegrariansPlatform, the #REX follows a subject a day, building layer by practical layer for the real client and real enterprise that is the basis for this unique 10 day experience.
The #REX Convention is guided over its journey by #Regrarians Ltd. #DarrenJDoherty, a consultant’s consultant & designer’s designer of world class & reputation. Unfortunately right now, few people on the planet have the real project experience and track record that Darren brings to the #REX, but that’s what the #REX is all about changing…
The #REX does not promise all things to all people, it is founded on reality and accordingly we want you to consider the following questions:
DO YOU WANT?
*To do a course that is ‘cutting to the chase’ and respects your valuable time, investment & involvement?
*To do a course that is led by someone has over 20 years of real project experience in well over 40 countries?
*To walk away from a course with less questions than when you started because now you know how to get to work?
*To do a course where you are working on a real project with real clients and real outcomes?
*A level of professional support following the course?
*To do daily exercises that build your confidence and understanding from Day 1?
*To get constructive and participatory feedback on your work?
*An intense experience that is big on you understanding processes you’ll be able to take to any regenerative agricultural project?
We like to think that the #REX is ‘Uncertified Rational’. Many of #Regrarians‘ 15,000+ alumni have told us that they don’t need a piece of paper (though you will still get one!), what they’d like is practical, pragmatic and proven skills + techniques and technologies that are going to take them, their enterprises and their landscapes further. #Regrarians would like to make it our promise that that’s what will do with this and every #REX we do…

If you plant Otherwise for those who wanted to rough it we are you are welcome to camp at the REX course venue, which is what we encourage. If you are doing this then you’ll need to:
• *Arrive squeaky clean
• *A solar-heated shower will be available for use (5 mins max)
• *Please bring all that you need as this is a working farm, not a caravan park or accommodation provider. You will be roughing it with the basic provisions an organised camp out would usually provide (ie. toilet, bush shower & washing up)
• There is wireless internet available in the classroom but not on the farm. Depending on your cell phone provider service is spotty at best.
• *There are no laundry facilities on-site.
