We are a couple, Alexandre & Raphaëlle, back from a travel in Asia to see and/or volunteer on sustainable projects / eco communities / organic farms.
We would like to apply some permaculture principle we learnt.
We want to share knowledges.
We are interested in Permaculture because we think this is a useful tool to build our house, grow our veggies and think about people around us.
We are interested in cooking / transforming / processing food. All kinds and way of conserving / fermented products (making tofu, fermented sauces, vinegars, tempeh, get oil out of nuts, fruits and seeds)
In the near future we will :
- open a plastic-free / unpackaged / DIY grocery store
- build our house.
- make our soap & shampoo
- grow our vegetables and ferment them :)
- make our vegetable oil
- make our Biofuel & Biogaz
- make our clothes with natural fibers
- make our dye out of plants
- collect rainwater and purify it to drink it
Now we gather more information specific to our country and types of soil to finally design our modest permaculture garden in Louches, where we live.
