Goal : buy a land (around 1 hectare), in the department of Gard, before 2020, to create an eco-place.
This place will be opened to every person interested by a way of life based on self-sufficiency, simplicity, sharing in a joyous and relaxed atmosphere.
From the beginning of his creation, the eco-place will follow the permaculture’s ethics :

Why this project ?
°To show it’s possible to have a healthy and simple life for us and for our planet, keeping comfort and joy of life together.
°Because in 2009 I woke up and I dreamt to see appear linked and supportive eco-places. In 2017, at 30, after I met full of persons who are living in this way and who inspired me, I feel it’s the right moment to act, and share this project of life by appealing to a crowfunding whithout which I couldn’t realize it.
°Since 2012, I go to a way of life more self-sufficient and I share my knowledges learned practically during workshops and via this website since 2016.
°In 2016 : 1st workshop of Solar Cooker and Rocket Stove oraganised with the association Les Pensées Sauvages
The 1st Solar Cooker, with seat
°In 2017 :
– workshops of Rocket Stove and Flex-Yurt continued, alone or in group.
2 future Rocket Stove
°I also organized with others, several social and ecological collective projects :
– the Roulotte Fai Da Te to spread autonomous knowledges for people in need or not,
– Féria de l’Autonomie et de la Connexion : the goal was to link eco-places around Nîmes in 2 days thanks to ecological means of transport, to show that “the self-sufficiency and the ecology” don’t mean “return to the candle”,
– and Nîmes en Transition : since 2016 this group rally more and more local actors and actress in fields like eco-habitat or upcycling, and enable to the Nîmes’ habitants to see what’s happening in their city.
– I settled at the Ferme Haricot, in a Flex-Yurt. It’s an eco-place where self-governance is the key word. Learning life in intergenerational collective is rich there. My desire to create a new eco-place was maturing also there.

Due to those projects and some trips in several eco-places in differents countries, it’s time for me to build in my native land… around Nîmes.
I hope to realise this ideal of life and create an other oasis of resilience.
To provide at this child inside me and all those who are growing , to blossom in a sustainable environment, saying “I’m sure that everybody can live like this, with locals resources, here and anywhere, now and in 1000 years“.
Why starting this project alone ?
“If you want to go fast, walk alone. If you want to go far away, walk together”
I really like this african proverb.
To begin, this project is the fruit of a lot of reflections, experiences and sharing with a lot of people here and there.
Then I go for it “alone” because I can vouch to realize this project until his achievement. And to start it here and now is something that’s near to my heart.
Of course if persons are interested by all aspects of this project, the door is opened.
This eco-place will be create and it lives on thanks to the community.
