  • Description


    Hello everybody! come to enjoy permaculture life :)

    I'am Hicham, In 2016 I started to get interested in aquaponics systems and permaculture. I have spent the last 6 years training and practicing gardening on living soil. I created an ecological transition association at November 2017.
    I'am starting a brand new micro-farm based on agroecology. I appreciate the concept of permaculture and I apply it to agriculture, and eco-building. My project began in October 2020,
    thanks to my friends who helped me. Hence this summer will be My first harvest and I am very excited about it!
    My project is a non-profit organisation.
    Since my farm is still young, you'll be able to bring your own ideas to life on our permaculture design and on other projects.
    at the moment we are creating a new vegetable garden on living soil (Agroecology project)
    Depending on your month of arrival, you will take part in some of the projects.

    If you are willing to discover the universe of permaculture, agroecology and eco-building, don't hesitate contacting me.
    I am looking forward to welcoming you!
