Extension of the agro-cultural revolution

 

To increase our vegetable production, in addition to the organic kitchen garden certified AB since 2015, more crops are grown on the plot of Chalmont in the plain between Courances and Fleury.

 

The new plot is undergoing conversion, which means that it is not yet certified organic (will be in 2018) but already grown without chemical fertilisers or pesticides in compliance with AB specifications.

 

A full-scale experience of live soil gardening without ploughing or chemistry is also underway in the plain, producing artichokes, squash, onions and potatoes.

 

Likewise, soil revitalisation through agroforestry is implemented by planting trees on some open field plots.
