​"Permaculture is Revolution disguised as Organic Gardening"
(Samuel Alexander)
Our garden was born in a meadow behind one of our outbuildings in 2011. Some fruit trees, a patch of vegetable garden and some red fruits. Then the hens appeared, and the areas started to add up. Eventually we applied to be officially Certified Organic.
This was not enough because the environment  of La Brosse was natural, but not alive enough. The ecosystem of the property gave us the impression of always being in a slight imbalance. We needed to find  solutions.

For many people that come and visit us, permaculture is just a new way of gardening, or I often hear it's grown on hillocks.
For us at this stage, it is observing, preserving, planting a lot improving, sharing and trying new approaches.
Our initial 2017 tests were conclusive in our attempts to improve the texture of our soil and densification.​

I found this video on you tube that can help illustrate a funnier side of permaculture.

Is Permaculture important?

When you read the WFO, the UNFCC reports about people’s continued inability to feed themselves due to political instability, changing climate conditions, antiquated food growing processes, to name just a few, the question answers itself. You will find reference about Permaculture and its potential to help restore this or that problem, but the implementation phase is hard or impossible. If we all collectively don’t work together to find solutions, the situation we find ourselves in might become irreversible. You often read about top down solutions, the global to local approach. Wouldn’t a local to local, knowledge sharing as we know see it at a small scale be the sensible approach for the future?
