  • Descripción


    We are a small collective taking care of a beautiful permacultural garden of 2.5 hectares, chosing an alternative way of living with a truthful intention to create with the Nature surrounding us.

    We are located just at the Swiss border near Geneva.

    This family adventure started around 30 years ago, the land were farm crops and nothing else. Passionate people contributed to make this land, an authentic small piece of heaven. We are now 5 people (between 27 and 32) taking over this incredible place. There is hard work behind to preserve what has been done and to plant new seeds for many new projects.

    We are more than happy to welcome anyone willing to share good vibes, experiences, new knowledge to start growing a small community to honor and take care of this wonderful place.

    Our link with the surrounding nature is a key motive to our activities here. As we are just at the edge of the big forest of Jussy we are lucky to have a lot of wildlife around our areas of activities.
