I'm Hilde, living in Biches, Burgundy region, central France. Together with my son Robin, we started a small scale permaculture project. I did a 72H permaculture course with Steve Read. Currently we are renovating the house (using natural and recycled materials as much as possible ) and developing a garden. Robin is setting up his mushroom farm.
