  • Description



    We are 3 french/canadian friends ( Aline, Julien et Paul) working mostly with plants. We are a NPO how promote activities around plant
    Living South of the Luberon chain mountain, in the beautiful Provence, we enjoy this nice space while picking plants to transform them into essential oils ( among other products), we also make visit at he farm, demonstration of distillation...

    This year, we start new projects :
    - new farm land open to touristic visits
    - buil a storage place for plant and animals.

    We live in collectif, we work in collectif, so we need communication and more, communic-action. We do a project about wild plant, try to connect people with NATURE, it's hard and take a lot of energy. We do that because we have to believe in something better for our world, be sure it's your choice ;)
