Farmer designers, agriculture on the move

from 14 July 2021 to 17 January 2022

<<< back to menu Off-site: visits of farms and vineyards

A programme of visits to farms and vineyards is also offered in collaboration with the farmers, wine-growers, livestock farmers and market gardeners encountered throughout the region and beyond keen to share their innovative methods.

This programme of off-site visits also looks to highlight the construction of a European network of large estates and large farms undergoing an agroecological transition, an initiative championed by the Domaine du Possible University, supported by the Tides Foundation and the Didier and Martine Primat Foundation. The farms and large estates participating in the network grow crops over a minimum of 30 hectares, with a diversity of at least two production workshops with different legal statuses. These farms and estates all share the common principles of having organic farming certification, developing agroecological practices, participating in the food self-sufficiency of their region, setting up in protected ecological areas or areas under regeneration, and promoting a viable lifestyle (ergonomics, economics, inclusion of women and people not from a farming background).
