Winter has come and eotopia is more than ever in hibernation. Only a few activities will be organized during that time by the guardians of the temple : Juliette and Vincent. They are ready to brave the cold and loneliness while winter will gently prepare the soil for the spring. Where will be the others ? Some have cowarldy flewed towards Mexico, some others are working in Paris, write their thesis or just spend some quality time between lovers.
Just before we officially close our doors, we finished the structure of our futur Greenhouse/veranda in front of the house. It’s not too big, about 10 m2, but it should help tomatoes and other plants giving fruits earlier and heat a little bit the house. We’ve used only reused materials, palets, windows, doors et some planks gathered here and there. We’re waiting for the spring to isolate with dirt and straw. If it works the way we hope, we might extend it in the future.
Garden is resting and besides some kale, cabbages, arugula and chards, there is not much. Some beans grow in the greenhouse and the berries are hibernating.
We haven’t defined yet precise dates for the opening of the place for visitors. What we know is that we will keep receiving people two weeks per month. It worked fine until now. We’ll let you know in march for the next visitor’s periods.
However, we have some dates to give you, and not the least ones ! We will organise our first Eotopia festival this summer. It will take place from the wednesday 27th of June to the monday 2nd of july. Places are limited since we want to keep this first festival quite small with no more than 70 attendees. So please, if you are interested, let us know !
This festival will be a gathering where everyone will be able to offer a workshop or an activity (please let us know in advance), meals will be taken together with the food everyone will bring or that will be rescued around, the event will be completely self-organised to celebrate gift economy, trust and consciousness. We will communicate more about this festival, the different activities in the future.
But it’s still a bit far ahead, in the meantime, have a wonderful winter !
