Domaine du Possible in Arles, Bouches-du-Rhône
Initiated by Françoise Nyssen and Jean-Paul Capitani, co-founders of Actes Sud, the Domaine du Possible with organic farming certification is a place to experiment with farming practices reinvented with the contribution of today's knowledge. It falls within the new dynamic of the agroecological transition being undertaken by large estates. Olive and almond tree agroforestry, an ethological equestrian centre, diversified market gardening in mobile greenhouses, laying hens and broilers in solar hot houses, and an orchard and vegetable garden are all being tested with a farming team of six, coordinated by the Domaine du Possible University, a research and training centre dedicated to agroecological scaling and, in connection with the Domaine du Possible School, developing active teaching based on a strong relationship with nature and cultivation from nursery to secondary school.
