This framework has been developed to deliver the Program at scale, working with a collaboration of place appropriate partners known as an Alliance.
Each Alliance collaboratively works to restore at least 350,000 acres of depleted agricultural land (plant or animal production) over a 5 year period. An Alliance is ideally an aggregation of multiple small, medium and large land holdings.
An Alliance is provided with the equivalent of $18.4 million in subsidies and support to offset initial costs. This resourcing is provided by the Agricultural Abundance Global Trust (AAGT).
At no time does the process require any halt or interruption to farming practices. Crops can be planted, animals can graze.
Whilst the Program requires a commitment of five (5) years, measurable improvements are often seen within 3 months. Historically this directly translates into improved economic returns at the farm gate shortly after.
Implementation scales over time, allowing for farmers and land managers to up-skill and build confidence in the agricultural outcomes.
Monitoring, evaluation and reporting of soil health outcomes continues for the duration of the Program.
Required farm inputs are capped at $90* per acre for the duration of the Program. However, as soon as local manufacturing capacity is high enough to meet participant demand, the cost begins to significantly decrease.
* For the first 2 years, farm input cost is subsidised by one third through the AAGT.
