The Savory Hub is being recognized for their work in developing Land to Market Australia, an effort organized by a group of more than 30 farmers who have joined together to monitor the ecological health of their farmland.

Land to Market Australia, a project of the Australia Holistic Management Cooperative Savory Hub, has been named Grand Champion of the 2019 NSW Landcare Awards for the Australian Government Innovation in Agriculture Award.

The Savory Hub project was selected as one of three Champions in the category for their "leadership in application of innovative farming practices", and announced as the Grand Champion winner at the awards ceremony Wednesday in Broken Hill, NSW.

The 2019 Landcare Awards by NSW Local Land Services recognize practices that deliver improved natural resource management and farm productivity outcomes.

In its 20th year, the Landcare Awards have recognised and celebrated the achievements of groups and individuals in the landcare community who have made a significant contribution to the environment, sustainable farming practices and natural resource management.

"Land to Market is proud to have been recognised as Grand Champion of innovation in agriculture by NSW Landcare as we build the profile of our new brand, based on robust measurement of the ecological health of farmland that is kept under production," said Tony Hill, Savory Hub Leader.

The Savory Hub is being recognized for their work in developing Land to Market Australia, an effort organized by a group of more than 30 farmers who have joined together to monitor the ecological health of their farmland.

Land to Market Australia has adopted the Savory Institute’s Ecological Outcome Verification (EOV) methodology as a tool for monitoring and verifying the ecological health of their primary production land, which continues to be involved in agricultural production.

EOV is a world-first approach for cost-effective verification of ecological health that can provide robust results while being implemented at a large scale. It provides the foundation for Land to Market Australia to operate as a brand that engages both businesses and consumers to vote with their dollars to support ecological health and biodiversity.

As Grand Champion of this prestigious award, Land to Market Australia will continue their push to bring verified ecological outcomes to the forefront of Australia agriculture.
