Discovery of Permaculture

Jean-Philippe Beau-Douëzy and Davy Cosson (weekend)




What are we going to do?

During these two days you will discover the essential principles of permaculture and how to adopt them in your daily life.

We will go for a walk in the garden-forest of the Bouchot farm, we will observe the soils and their life, we will admire the water in the vortices that energize it.

We will make a design of your planting containers, your terrace or your land and if the weather permits, seedlings.


What is permaculture?

Invented and taught in Australia for more than 30 years and today all over the world, permaculture offers you a new approach to our relationship to the earth, to ourselves and to others. It also aims to create abundance and share it.
Its three founding principles are:
- take care of the earth
- taking care of humans (self and others)
- create abundance and share equitably.


To whom is this stage addressed ?

This course is for everyone, whether you live in the city or in the countryside, in an apartment or in a house.

Beyond theoretical knowledge, you will discover a concrete and practical approach to permaculture and natural agriculture.

And we will share good times together at the Ferme du Bouchot.
