The agroecological microfarm: a circular...

This book is the story of a personal adventure: that of Lauriane and Charles, who decided to become farmers. In the 21st century, it's quite a story! It is based on several years of experience gained on the field in their small farm (less than 5 hectares). But it is also a reflection on French agriculture: some would have us believe that it is doomed, others say it must industrialize to compete globally. Lauriane and Charles explore other, very promising avenues. Instead of working against nature, they decided to work with it, following the principles of permaculture. Is their land wet? They will dig ponds and plant trees around them! They will raise crayfish in the water, bees and pigs outside... Thus, little by little, a new, ecological, more humane, circular and highly productive agriculture is being invented, which maximizes the potential of a small area without ever depleting it. Finally, this book is an installation guide. Aspiring farmers, as well as the merely curious, will find in Lauriane and Charles' experience a wealth of useful information. Especially since they don't avoid the fundamental questions: how much does it cost? How to get assistance? Where to train? Where to sell? How to organize collectively? Accessible and practical, rich in testimonials and illustrations, this title proves essential for creating an agroecological microfarm and making a living from it.

The farmer craftsman

Manual for small-scale breeding of broiler chickens, laying hens, and dairy goats In 2008, Dominic Lamontagne and his partner Amélie decided to settle in Sainte-Lucie-des-Laurentides with their two children, motivated by the desire to escape the city, to take the keys to the countryside, and to learn to feed themselves. To their surprise, the project faced numerous regulatory obstacles. Despite these constraints, they managed to establish a subsistence farm on less than a hectare of cleared land, comprising a small number of dairy goats, laying hens, and broiler chickens.

The Indian Runner Duck - Your asset for a...

Have you ever thought about having ducks in your garden? In addition to being endearing and easy to raise, Indian Runner ducks are incredibly efficient at regulating populations of slugs and snails. They can live in the vegetable garden without damaging the plants and are able to weave between the vegetables in search of their favorite prey. To top it off, the ducks lay excellent eggs in large numbers throughout the year. Damien Dekarz takes us on a journey to discover the species and shares all his tips for successful breeding. He teaches us how to take care of ducks by considering their needs: number of individuals, space, nesting/sleeping area, fencing, food, predators... Then he focuses on the ducks' life in the vegetable garden: good plant associations, routes, protections... Reproduction, diseases, cohabitation with other animals, building a pond, and of course, egg collection are also discussed. This book will help you naturally limit gastropods. Whether you are a gardener, nursery worker, or professional market gardener, these amazing waterfowl will be your allies for a productive garden rich in biodiversity.

The Round Divisible Hive for beekeeping...

''For the Happiness of Bees'', could have been the title of this work, the result of a lifetime of experience devoted to beekeeping. The round divisible hive is a plea for the simple realization of hives, but also for their management in harmony with the biology and ecology of bees. The relevance of the argument quickly becomes apparent: "But why didn't anyone think of this before?" exclaims one from the first pages of the book. As a seasoned educator, Gilbert Veuille imparts to us, step by step, a teaching accessible to all. His method ensures both good health for the colony and a significant honey harvest…
