  • Description

    Description

    Since early 2014, we have been busy preparing the soil at a beautiful 1.5 hectare orchard in the Eicherfeld, just 10 minutes away from Luxembourg City.

    A wide range of traditional varieties of fruit trees, perfectly spaced at 10m apart, allow for rows of perennial and annual vegetables, herbs and beneficial flowers to be cultivated in-between,thus creating a resilient and diverse agricultural system that mimics the balance and biodiversity found in a natural ecosystem.

    The produce is then distributed directly to our members through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) scheme and therefore bypasses the need for wholesalers and eliminates the financial and environmental costs involved in importing food from far away.

    There are many things that make working with us a unique and enriching experience:

    Get hands-on practical experience in Permaculture and discover the daily reality of a productive agroecological centre.

    Be part of a growing community of like-minded friendly people.

    Enjoy the fresh air of the outdoors and do some physical activity in a beautiful surrounding of orchards and forest.
