Newsletter spring 2018

Good day everyone,

It’s a big pleasure to give you some news after a rainy (and sometimes snowy) but happy winter ! The communal house has been quiet for the brave resident who stayed with a collection of butternuts and the cats Osiris and Ramsès who finally became friends. Juliette and Vincent have appreciated each day and are proud to say they are fully enjoying this life changing step.

We are now all back or almost on the land for the eternal rebirth of nature. On schedule, for the main activities : planting trees, apple and prune trees ; plant as much seeds as possible (we’ve done already hundreds in our new veranda/greenhouse ; finish the phytodepuration bassin started in February ; isolate the greenhouse in front of the house with some clay and straw ; prepare the garden ; finish the isolation of the roof ; install the solar heat system and prepare the festival coming in June 2018 !

About the festival, some news. We have already 19 people who subscribed, hurry ! The theme will honor the name Eotopia which means on the way towards utopia. We invite you to take part in the creation of a small ecovillage with the construction of dry toilets, a kitchen with rocket stove, the preparation of a garden et the buildings of small chalets with palettes. A good training for when you’ll get your land ! On side of that, many other things : yoga, meditation, confection of dental paste, wooden tools, tawashis, paper masks and cooking lessons with wild plants. You are also invited to offer a workshop or an activity of your own !
