“Natural farming”, our choice for the future, naturally adapted to our living environment …

Natural farming in Asia is a modern natural agricultural practice that combines the sustainability of ancient Asian cultivation techniques with Western scientific production methods to bring about phenomenal growth adapted to all climates of the world.

It comes to us from Korea and is studied all over the world with the aim of perfecting the collaboration between “cultivators and cultivators” for a harmonious balance and respect for all living beings.

It is a partnership between soils and their bios and a set of formulas for improving plant growth through biostimulants.

Practitioners build robust microbial communities resulting in fertile soils, more nutrients available to plants, and scientifically enhance natural processes to help nature by adjusting and adapting practices as needed.

What is a natural construction

Natural construction uses low-toxic, untreated materials and systems, used appropriately for the climate, site and intended use. It primarily incorporates natural materials rather than commercial ones, with an emphasis on obtaining these natural materials from as local a source as possible, ideally from the construction site itself.

A life-size learning workshop to better assimilate all the techniques and stages of natural construction. Whether it is ponds, decorative walls for the garden or bungalows, you will have the opportunity to work on concrete projects and to perfect your already acquired techniques.

It’s a workshop, not a training course with a diploma…

The Permaculture Internship, for example, is a qualified trainer who teaches you the techniques according to a specific program and gives a certificate at the end of the internship with subjects imposed by the founders of permaculture.

Regarding the workshop, it is my wife and I who will animate and supervise the activities which will be flexible according to the request of our customers. No diploma will be awarded to you at the end of your stay.

Protection of biodiversity

Échange de semences

One of the essential first steps for organic farming and self-sufficiency is to produce healthy and reproducible seeds!

 

Seeds are essential for humanity as they are the first step in the production of food. When they have been improved thanks to the intervention of the peasants, taking into account the particular local conditions, these seeds represent the cultural value of the traditions, knowledge and know-how on the use of biodiversity.

Our winged pea seeds for the Seeds Without Borders campaign

For our part, we of course work mainly with fertile organic seeds, thanks among other things to the partnership set up with the Kokopelli association… We produce winged peas seedsOur winged pea seeds for the Seeds Without Borders campaign, in return we receive vegetable seeds every year, we make a “fair trade”

What we also appreciate is receiving seeds from our visitors in order to increase the biodiversity of the farm. We appreciate it when our hosts bring seeds from their home country or from a country they have visited.

Sharing can also be done through what you bring… It’s a pleasure for us to have trees, flowers, vegetables from all over the world!

This exchange is of course a plus, and in no way an obligation.

The Suwan Organic Farm is pleased to announce that we can now offer yoga sessions and initiation all year round and on the days of your choice. It’s always a good time to think about yourself 😊🧘
