(projects i'm following)
PDC in 2005 and diploma in 2009 at the french permaculture festival.
Running projects on my own land and in my direct surroundings: association, consumer group, eco-center...
I believe permaculture is also connecting oneself with our surroundings, not only yearning for the absolute autonomous ecovillaging attitude.
I am slowly planting a temperate food forest as I multiply the necessary plants. I lived for a year with my wife in a small autonomous (water and energy wise) house I restored, it is a 200 years old pork-house. We live now in what used to be a tobacco dryer, a beautiful natural and autonomous strawbale house. The construction was participative and started a little community here, we are now building a classroom (self supported structure) and restoring the barn for future workshops.
Live here as if it was forever...
is the ethical moto written on the dry toilets' door
Doing things myself and slowly and not always depending on the mercantile lifestyle is important to us, getting out of the nuclear grid and aiming towards a substancial autonomy...
This is also what I try to teach in the workshops I organize.
I successfully built a teaching team with great colleagues on their way to the Diploma and am getting involved in the diploma process in France.
We are aiming at creating opportunities for a diversity of workshops styles to improve their accessibility.
I teach PDCs in France, spain and Roumania and started to design professionnaly in 2009... although I try to remain at home as long as possible to keep experimenting with our little crowd there.
My wife Chenli and our two boys have our little family thing going on in the midst of all this.
We accept visitors in a trailer and welcome help during the warm season for exchanges of all kinds...
thanks for contacting us in advance!
The third PDC there: great place, great people and future autonomy since one of our hosts is going for the diploma in september... the work/word is spreading
Our goal is to recreate the biotope of these apple trees in order to preserve this genetic heritage for the future générations.
Clay - Straw - Bread and co.
The three first PDCs given in France by a wonderful team composed of one supervisor (diplomee) and Permaculture students preparing their diploma.
