The Australian Holistic Management Co-operative Presents

Land to Market Australia

Our co-operative for Australian holistic producers is now a reality!

It all began at the 2016 Dubbo Holistic Management Conference organised by Hooves 4 Humus and the Australian Holistic Management Educators Group, then in 2017 we were awarded a grant from Farming Together to establish Land to Market Australia and set up a holistic management co-operative. The establishment meeting of the Australian Holistic Management Co-operative Limited took place on 16 July 2018, and the co-operative was registered by ASIC as NSWC32856 in September 2018.

The primary activities of the co-operative are to:

  1. Provide services for the ecological monitoring and regeneration of agricultural land.
  2. Promote produce from land where ecological monitoring and regenerative agriculture is taking place, particularly through development, control and marketing of a recognisable brand.
Land to Market Australia

Land to Market Australia
Land to Market Australia is a regenerative sourcing verification scheme set up for the benefit of consumers, market partners and producers.

The challenges for those of us dedicated to stewarding the land are not simple. For many years, agriculture and the production of food and fibre has resulted in the massive degradation of billions of acres of land worldwide.

Now new approaches are offering a beneficial impact on soil, water and the environment. This is a viable solution to many of the looming crises that afflict the world, such as food security, land degradation, and climate change.

Land to Market Australia is spearheading a program of sourcing verification that for the first time will measure the impact of farming practices on ecological outcomes. The program also establishes robust methodologies to capture data, as well as provides a clearly structured participatory guaranteed scheme (PGS) for support, training, mentoring and verification for the farmers involved.

The Australian Holistic Management Cooperative Project gratefully acknowledges the financial and other support it received in 2017-18 from The Farm Co-operatives and Collaboration Pilot Program (Farming Together Program).
