  • Description


    In September 2013, our project was authorized by the Municipality of Sainte-Beatrix (located an hour and a bit north of Montreal). This is an eco-tourism project eventually involving the existence of a functioning eco-hamlet consisting forge, workshops of all kinds, gardens, etc., doubled rental housing for people of outside. In fact, we want to become, in a few years, a kind of research university and developments in ecological solutions and fulfillment of human potential.
