Les Jardins Bio have been created 20 years ago and still are in expansion. These are 3 acres of several vegetable gardens, a seasonal greenhouse and an orchard.
The vegetable gardens on the mountainside are in permacultural transformation with a creation of permanent crops. The soil is never worked mechanically anymore and tends towards better fertility.
Part of the production is used by the cooks of the Center to offer meals full of energy. Another part is sold at the Saint-Elie-de-Caxton market from June to September and also in baskets.
