THE PROJECT PIONEER
Project Pioneer helps producers achieve sustainable and profitable agribusinesses through farm management practices that promote soil health and biodiversity, with the aim of reducing sediment run-off into the Great Barrier Reef Catchments, and fostering happy and healthy people.
This project is built on Resource Consulting Services’ (RCS) 30 years of experience over which they have partnered with more than 10,000 clients to transform farm management practices for better business, environmental and personal outcomes.
The concept for the project originated when RCS and WWF struck up a conversation around the health of the Great Barrier Reef and the role of producers. The idea has been popular with industry and environmental groups due to the outcomes proven to be ‘win-win’ for the farmer, and the Reef. Project Pioneer is funded by the partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
Through Project Pioneer, producers engage in the RCS Rural Profit System, beginning with the Grazing for Profit™ (GFP) program where they are introduced to a new regenerative approach to managing their business. The regenerative movement in agriculture links biodiversity to healthy soils, healthy businesses, healthy animals, and healthy people.
The Rural Profit System journey continues with Next Steps, a six-month coaching program where producers are mentored in the application of principles learned through the project. Many producers then go on to further their professional development with the three-year Executive Link™ program.
Producers are not only given the knowledge to make the changes needed to achieve these goals, but dedicated advisors provide ongoing support to embed the learnings back on-farm and provide a clear direction for the future.
