  • Description

    Description

    We (Margot & Antoine) are creating an eco-preneurial project that aims to create a self sustainable living system where we form conditions under which humans, animals and nature can exist in productive harmony. Herewith, we would like to set an example of how sustainable practices from different aspects can easily be integrated in everyone’s lives. By doing so, we hope to inspire others.
    The land, La Resse, is a consecutive domain of about 120 football fields large. It knows a rather big variety in nature and geographical characteristics, as there are different kinds of forest vegetations and pasture lands. Water streams spring from the ground that lead to a river (the “Arn”) that delimits the terrain for 1500 metres.
    We have dogs, cats, chickens, geese, sheep, pigs and a goat.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is the ideal place to learn more about nature, forest maintenance, permaculture and integrating sustainable principles, construction work and animal care.
    We like to offer a platform where people from all backgrounds can share their ideas and knowledge, a place where we can learn from each other's visions and life experiences. We like to engage in philosophical conversations and cook delicious meals together. Together with volunteers we want to discover and explore the best ways to inspire others to integrate sustainable practices in one's lives and how we can best have a positive impact on our local environments and communities. Activities to do here are helping with work in the veggie garden, feeding the animals, find the best ways to build sustainable animal enclosures/an eco cabin/outdoor showers, make soap and cosmetics, gather firewood, share your recipes of your favourite dishes, look for ways to conserve food, help maintain the forest, go on walks that cross stunning landscapes etc. If you like to carve wood and/or build small wood furniture/artistic pieces, there is also plenty of possibility here to do so.

    Can possibly accept pets

    This depends if your pet is used to being with other animals around and let's them be. Our animals mainly roam free (sheep, chickens, geese, cats and dogs). It is important that our animals do NOT experience any stress from having a pet around that chases them for example.
