  • Description


    hello, we are a couple who create a farm from scratch. for the moment we live in a yurt, and we have a lot of projects. building a superadobe, a kerterre, a permaculture garden, ect. We will be very happy to receive you here :)

    It is difficult to summarize a project in a few online but not impossible.
    We are in search of a new way of life, at the border between the decay, new technologies or techniques, and Western life. We want to bring the best of yesterday and today in one place, to find a new way, a way of living that least impact the environment.

    To move in this direction, we seek to be as independent as possible. We produce our energy (solar), we have our own source of water, and we have a large vegetable garden to feed us.

    We lack, however, still many things to our project fully realized, the economic aspect is very present in Western society, and we must still generate some income, so we would like to create a bit of tourism on our home, and we decide to create kerterres to receive people. (The kerterres are small dwellings on land that the shape of an igloo.) But the first beneficiaries will be the people who come construires;). We must also build a shed for our animals, and maintain the garden.

    You understood, any help is welcome! : D

    Bonjour, il est difficile de résumer un projet, en quelques ligne, mais pas impossible.
    Nous somme a la recherche d'un nouveau mode de vie, a la frontière entre la décroissance, les nouvelles technologies ou techniques, et la vie occidentale. Nous voulons réunir le meilleur d'hier et d'aujourd'hui dans un même lieu, afin de trouver une nouvelle voie, une façon de vivre qui impact moins notre environnement.

    Pour aller dans ce sens, nous cherchons à être le plus autonome possible. Nous produisons notre énergie (solaire), nous avons notre propre source d'eau, et nous avons un grand jardin potager pour nous nourrir.

    Il nous manque cependant encore beaucoup de chose pour réalisé totalement notre projet, l'aspect économique est très présent dans la société occidentale, et nous devons tout de même générer quelques revenus, nous souhaiterions donc crée un peut de tourisme sur notre lieu de vie, et nous avons décider de crée des kerterres pour recevoir les gens. (Les kerterres sont de petites habitations en terre qui on la forme d'igloo.) Mais les premier bénéficiaires serons les personnes qui viendrons les construires ;). Nous devons également construire un hangar pour nos animaux, et entretenir le potager.

    Vous l'avez compris, toute aide sera la bienvenue ! :D
