Living With The Earth, Volume 1

Embark on an inspiring journey with Perrine and Charles Hervé-Gruyer as they redefine farming through their pioneering ‘ecoculture’ approach, blending biointensive agriculture and permaculture design.

In 2006, they embarked on a quest not just to farm organically but to revolutionize how we think about agriculture, aiming for productivity, carbon sequestration, and enriching local employment.

Their adventure led to the creation of a farm that’s more than just a source of organic produce; it’s a vibrant ecosystem that gives back to the earth and the community.

This journey is encapsulated in a visually stunning, comprehensive guide that not only shares their groundbreaking techniques but also dives deep into understanding natural systems and how to work harmoniously with them.

Learn how to read weather patterns, understand soil types, and appreciate ecosystem services to thrive in your environmental niche.

The book offers a step-by-step guide on designing a farm or garden that’s both ecologically diverse and abundantly productive, using Bec Hellouin Farm’s remarkable success as a blueprint.

From composting and mulching to leveraging the power of beneficial microorganisms, discover a wealth of strategies for nurturing healthy soil in a sustainable loop.

Coupled with a synthesis of years of research and scientific backing, this book stands as an essential resource for serious gardeners, farmers, agronomists, and permaculture designers seeking to implement impactful, sustainable agricultural practices.

Join the movement towards an agriculture that cares for the earth, sustains local communities, and produces abundantly.

This isn’t just a book; it’s a manifesto for the future of farming, inviting you to be part of a global change.

Welcome to the world of ecoculture, where farming becomes an act of restoration and hope.
