  • Description


    The weather is cooling and I need help in moving my eco-project forward. We need to design, test and build a solar still to remove the salt from the water to start growing more kinds of food. There are also other projects for all skill types. You are all welcome here in M'humid the gateway to the Sahara.

    My name is Madani , I live in the Draa Valley , the last village before the Sahara . I built this farm 6 years ago where I try to grow vegetables despite few resources.

    I am a nomad who has chosen to settle because of the drought, I know about camels not agriculture. I want to promote ideas and set a good standard for the people of the village and encourage them to do the same, to show them that this is possible, Unfortunately I do not get to be independent in my farm for lack of experience certainly , but also because of the weather and salt water .

    Je m'appelle Madani, j'habite dans la vallée du Drâa, le dernier village avant le Sahara. Il y a 6 ans j'ai construis cette ferme où j'essaie de faire pousser des légumes malgré une eau saumâtre et peu de moyens.
    Je suis un nomade qui a dû se sédentariser à cause de la sécheresse et je ne connais que les dromadaires, et non l'agriculture. Je veux donner l'exemple aux gens du village et les inciter à faire pareil, leur montrer que cela est possible, Malheureusement je n'arrive pas encore à être autonome dans ma ferme par manque d'expérience certainement mais aussi à cause des conditions climatiques et d'une eau salée.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can not even produce enough then you need to provide your food. That is why I request only 3 hours per day ( 15 hours max per week ). Rather I see this as a unique experience in a place of quiet and peaceful life.
    You will stay in rooms ( 1 to 4 maximum per room) or berber tents following the influx of people , awakened by the sound of birds singing amidst the palm trees / date trees and flowing water in crops.

    Mais comme je le disais je n'arrive pas encore à produire suffisamment alors vous devez prévoir votre budget nourriture. C'est pour cela que je demande seulement 3 heures de travail par jour ( 15 heures par semaine ). Il faut plutôt voir cela comme une expérience, tout en étant dans un lieu de vie paisible et calme avec un joli paysage.
    Vous serez loger dans des chambres ( de 1 à maximum 4 par chambre ) ou en tentes berbères suivant l'affluence de personnes, réveiller par le bruit des oiseaux qui chantent au milieu des palmiers/dattiers et de l'eau qui coule dans les cultures.
