  • Description

    Description

    This place of exchange and participatory work is located at the exit of Confolens, on the banks of the Goire. Between permaculture, crafts, edible forests and wild plants, we will eventually offer a mix of accommodation for transient people and shared work tools (kitchen lab, wood workshop, dryers, etc.), favoring low-tech and local solutions.
    Our neighbors come from various horizons but have a common goal of decline and peaceful life;) (edible forest, production of wild plants, ... each his hobby)

    In 2021-2022, the aim is to launch the infrastructure: renovation of a barn into a dwelling (wood frame in particular), as well as greenhouses / pergola / terrace / ponds / riparian forest
    The first part of the project consists in renovating a barn, and setting up a pleasant environment.


    Ce lieu d'échange et de travail participatif est situé à la sortie de Confolens, au bord du Goire. Entre permaculture, artisanat, foret comestibles et plantes sauvages, nous proposerons à terme un mélange entre hébergement de gens de passage et outils de travail partagé (labo cuisine, atelier bois, séchoirs ...), en privilégiant les solutions lowtech et local.
    Nos voisins sont de divers horizons mais avons un but commun de décroissance et de vie paisible ;) (foret comestible, prodution de plantes sauvages, ... chacun son dada)

    En 2021-2022, il s'agit de lancer les infrastructures: rénovation d'un grange en habitation (ossature bois notamment), ainsi que des serres / pergola / terrasse / mares / ripisylve
    The first part of the project consists in renovating a barn, and setting up a pleasant environment.
