We are a mixed family (Indian - Reunion - French for me and French-Moroccan for my wife) with 3 incredibles boys (7 to 1) living in south of Marrakech (20Km from City Center, facing the High-Atlas Mountains) on a micro-farm since May 2019. We are "learning by doing" autonomy and resiliency, sustainable growth and farming, building on multiples experimentations and knowledge sources (local, permaculture, The Agragarians, Forest Garden...). We have 1ha in total but only half of the land is currently farmed and occupied. We are about to launch Phase 2 of the project to prepare the soil and irrigation for a Forest-Garden. Phase 1 was mainly around the vegetable garden (around 1000m2) mixed with 70+ trees (olives, lemons, oranges, apricots...).

In eco-building and decoration, you can participate in decorating our guests' house, making furniture, etc.
In our arts' garden, you can decorate the walls, develop artworks (statues, natural objects...) that will fit into the different areas.
