Each 'New Farmer Start'provides
14 pounds of Zeba sent to most international destinations; enough for 1-5 acres for 1 year or more
1 start costs: $185
For rain-fed farming in scarce water conditions, our ‘new farmer start’ provides almost 6.4kg or 14lb of this unique starch-based superabsorbent.Offering a way for rain dependent farming families to survive intermittent rainfall and increase crop yields, so subsistence farmers facing water scarcity grow their way out of poverty.
Donations provide seed funding for: collaborations with NGOs, developing protocols to optimize crop harvests, purchasing and shipping materials, publishing AFI results internationally; enabling AFI to reach more subsistence farming households with Zeba.
Contributions to Abundance Farming Inc. are now tax deductable our 501c3 is approved.
'New Farmer Starts' where it all begins...
with a scarce water dosage of 6.4kg/14lb
Growing from each New Farmer Start, to provide broad benefit in the community
A 'New Farmer Start' covers the
cost for Zeba superabsorbent to be donated through NGOs to the poor farming
families they serve.
Coordinated with NGOs and non-profits, long term suplimented costs provide Zeba to the farming households they serve.
Growing from demonstrated local successes after years of increased yields, local
farmers offset costs.
Community takes over distribution of Zeba after local farmers have demonstrated successes.
Abundance Farming Project pays the initial costs to demonstrate benefits with local farming. Associations with NGOs and aid agencies underwrite material and transportation costs, after longer-term subsidies. Increased yields enable local farmers to profit and provide greater food supplies to their communities, eventually covering costs. Expandable model grows out from multiple hubs where local successes are demonstrated. Community run product distribution provides jobs and business experience around locally demonstrated successes.
AFP Metrics and Assessment
Key evaluation metrics and measures for each project development stage:
Stage 1 - How many farming households plant with Zeba, yield increases from the recent crop cycle, annual HH income increases, and estimated water offset (compared to typical for crop yields).
Stage 2 - How many NGOs are funding how many farming households planting with Zeba, yield increases from the recent crop cycle, annual HH income increases, and estimated water offset.
Stage 3 - How many farming households increase
and HH income over how many consecutive years while affording what portion of costs for Zeba.
Stage 4 - How many communities undertake distribution and the total community economic benefit in crop yields, HH income increases, jobs added, and total water offset.
Stage 5 - How many factories distribute to how many communities, what product cost reduction and what manufacturing capacity dedicated for that region's smallholder farmers, producing what economic benefit, and the total water offset.
