The gardeners foster life by cultivating with the gentlest care.
Nowadays everyone knows the dangers of pesticides and chemical fertilizers for the environment as well as for humans, all know that a garden is connected to the nature that surrounds it…
Particular attention is given to the soil, a living organism; we feed the soil, not the plants.
At the Sambucs all the cuttings and mowing go back to the garden or they are directly placed on the ground between the mature vegetables.
Depending on the crop types, we add compost or decomposed goat manure.
We use nettle, comfrey and horsetail manures to help us care for the crops, when needed.
Build on every terrace, wide nests collect the cuttings, the pulled weeds and the leaves that have fallen through the seasons.
The ecological and economic management of the vegetable garden ensures the autonomy of Croqu’jardin’s cooking.
The vegetable gardens are in the process of getting an organic certification for the second year.
To irrigate the gardens and vegetable patches we collect rain water in big reservoirs.
