Le Syndicat des Simples

Written by on January 3, 2017

J’ai eu vent du syndicat des simples il y a quelques années de ça, en m’intéressant à la production et récolte de plantes médicinales. J’y reviens aujourd’hui, dans le but d’encadrer mon projet, et de bénéficier d’un label et d’un accompagnement de qualité.

En plus, à terme, de témoigner de la qualité des produits et de la conscience dans laquelle on travaille avec les plantes, le syndicat des simples est une aide merveilleuse pour tous ceux qui désirent s’installer en plantes médicinales. Ils ont mis au point un système de parrainage, grâce auquel on bénéficie des conseils et encouragements des…

Meet a tree: The Spruce

Written by on January 3, 2017

A tree that is the center of discussions about ecology and economy has become the tree of the year 2017 in Germany. Why fight about the number one wood-supplier in Europe?

The history

Originally the european spruce was only to be found in the taiga1. By the end of the 18th century the forests had shrunk in Germany, while the need for wood grew with the beginning of industrialisation. The spruce, frugal yet useful in any context, became popular for reforestation. The monocultures were especially susceptible to vermin and storm loss, also the needles don’t decompose as easily, which leads to…

About wood and trees

Written by on January 3, 2017

 

I sit in a room full of stuff, most of it not really necessary for surviving, some of it filled with memories, some of it artistic and some of it just contains more stuff. Most of it valuable to me and I assure you, as soon as I try to clean up a little and make space, every little peace of litter suddenly is filled with meaning. Like that ticket to that concert where we went backstage, that empty pen carved into the form of a crocodile from my stay in Australia or that Hindi book, that I haven’t…

La biodynamie : sources et liens choisis

Written by on December 27, 2016

“L’agriculture biologique-dynamique est la première en date des méthodes dites biologiques (1924).
Elle n’est pas une agriculture naturelle au sens d’un retour à la nature. Elle essaye de comprendre les lois de la nature et de les respecter au mieux dans les pratiques agricoles : ceci concerne les aspects agronomiques et biologiques.
Elle s’intéresse aussi à l’aspect dynamique des choses ; “δυναμις” en grec signifie force, puissance et même chez Xénophon, fécondité. C’est la spécificité de cette méthode. Elle considère que les phénomènes ne sont qu’un aspect extérieur de la réalité et qu’il existe des relations de nature vivante-biologique, psychique et…

Ecopsychology : the work that reconnects

Written by on December 27, 2016

How can i protect the earth? Is it possible to heal the earth, if i don’t even respect myself and my feelings? What do the earth really need? What do i really need..

These are the kind of questions that often come back in my head, and in my heart. Sometimes, when i really think about all that is happening on this planet, how human beings treat their own home, animals and plants, i realize i honestly could cry for hours. These feelings are present in every single human being, but to protect ourselves from suffering, we block it. The…

PRECIOUS PLASTIC

Written by on October 20, 2016

Already as a kid, I would collect a bunch of trash that I would find in the street or on the beach and keep them as treasures. (Ask my mum, she was the happiest about that.) It was like recycling trash into games.
And now as a ‘grown up’ I see recycling as a duty and magic.

Let me introduce you to a great magician: Dave Hakkens.
The coolest thing is that he gives away his tricks in open source here  precious-plastic-kit-master
For all of us who want to try out becoming magicians.

(We’ll try on the farm and share)
Thanks Dave Hakkens

Step up

Written by on June 27, 2016

For weeks my pages stayed blank while time doesn’t take a break from writing books of memories. Every second is filled with a certain smell, a feeling, a picture painted of an endless variety of forms and colours. How do you squeeze this experience in words, that can at least allow my reader to grasp a clue of this life? And who are my readers? Who is waiting for what we have to share? Who is following us on this bumby road? When we welcome visitors here, I try to put my feet in their shoes, to help them…

La Guerre des Graines

Written by on June 11, 2016

Depuis 12 000 ans, les paysans sèment, sélectionnent et échangent librement leurs semences. Une pratique en danger face aux multinationales qui privatisent deja 75% des semences agricoles.

Une enquête qui vogue a la rencontre des acteurs d’un mouvement qui cherchent une alternative aux graines de l’industrie.

« La guerre des graines est dans chaque assiette, résume Vandana Shiva. Tant que la liberté des graines sera confisquée, alors notre nourriture le sera aussi. C’est pour cette raison que tout le monde doit être engagé pour réclamer la libération des graines. »

Un film documentaire de Stenka Quillet et Clement Montfort.
