Green manure seeds - In line with nature

In the middle of a rocky and dry area
we made the conscious decision to trust nature again.

It is a transformative journey, both for the soil and for ourselves. We adapt more and more to the rhythm of nature, we gain confidence and learn to surrender. We understand that we are not just cultivating for production, but that we are contributing to the improvement of the soil, investing in the future and that we are reconnecting with our natural selves.
