Project information

Name of food forest

Club Cueillette (The Picking Club)

Description

We develop a food forest on two locations: in Bellenaves (Allier) and Servant (Puy de Dôme). In Bellenaves we're renovating an old wine farm with a 1 ha forest which we are transforming in a food forest. The other one, close to the Sioule river, with stunning views on the volcanoes of the Auvergne, is a former meadow with a lot of old oaks. There we already planted more than hundred trees and shrubs. We created veggie and herbal gardens based on permaculture/no dig. We organize foraging camps for people who'd like to discover rural life and are interested in foraging in the broadest sense; also as a metaphore for research and a sober life in general. We're working with wwoofers, locals, tourists, etc. More info: club-cueillette.fr / deplukclub.nl
