    Description

    We, Yohan and you, and the residents to come ( open to share the land for living, co-working...), and the cat Nouzille, are creating a place where live together the vegetal, the animal, the human, and others (in evolution).😇
    In a quite wild countryside, we are creating a permacultural orchard, fruit forest, edible ecosystem... since 2014.
    We want the self-sufficiency for fruits and vegetables. This is also my professional activity, with a tree nursery as the main activity since 2016.
    The property start in a small hamlet, it goes down in a valley and goes up on a quite flat field, then its goes down in a forest with chestnut trees, oaks and beech trees. On the way we can see springs and streams. We can see mostly forest all around.
    It is the piedmont of the Massif Central (greeny and hilly ), at two jumps of the Causse (drier and stony, picturesque too) with medievals cités marked most beautiful towns of France all around...
    I'm interested by permaculture, biodynamy, Qi Gong, dynamisations (water, earth, ...)

    Nous, Yohan et vous, et les résidents à venir (ouvert pour la création d'un collectif, tous niveaux de partage possibles...), Et la minette Nouzille, sommes en cours de création d'un lieu où cohabitent, le végétal, l'animal, l'humain, et autres (en cours d'évolution).😇
    Depuis 2014, en pleine campagne semi-sauvage, la plus grande surface en transformation est destinée à un verger-forêt comestible, avec la plus grande variété de fruits possible, d'inspiration permacole, pour un revenu agricole et l'autonomie alimentaire. Une pépinière fruitière est la principale source de revenus depuis 2016.
    La propriété commence au hameau, pour descendre dans une vallée et remonter sur un petit plateau qui descend vers la forêt de châtaigniers, chênes et hêtres, le tout parsemé de sources et de ruisseaux. On peut voir principalement de la forêt tout autour.
    C'est sur le piémont du Massif Central (verdoyant et vallonné ), à deux sauts du Causse (plus sec et caillouteux, pittoresque aussi) avec des cités médiévales classées plus beaux villages de France un peu partout autour...
    Je suis intéressé par la permaculture, la biodynamie, le Qi Gong, les dynamisations énergétiques (eau, terre, ...)
