A respectful approach of our environment
We have always considered ourselves as tenants of the ground and therefore guaranters of the one we will leave to our children. That is why we have been practicing reasoned agriculture since our arrival. We have actually begun to apply the principles of organic farming since 2013. At weeding we prefer to plow the soil. It's a long job but it drastically reduces the use of chemicals. Since 2017, we have started a conversion into bio with the ECOCERT certification.
Our goal is to go towards biodynamics. That's why it was important for me, Nathalie, to take a training in herbal medicine to better understand my environment and use the resources with more sense. The construction of a yurt, made up of wood and salvage materials, has come to support our approach to respect for the environment. A clear dome of light brings brightness in all seasons. It provides additional ventilation to the doors and windows. This is a true ecological approach. In fact, less than 5 tons of materials are needed to achieve a structure of 80 m² usable throughout the year. 90% of the weight of a yurt consisting of unprocessed solid wood assembly (no glue), the remaining 10% are insulators in large majority from recycling industry and almost entirely recyclable.
