Réussir son jardin écologique la pratique du jardinage écologique et les principes de base du compagnonnage.
Je m’appelle Annie Poitras, j’ai 30 ans, et ce sera ma cinquième année de production maraichère à Saint-Godefroi, en Gaspésie. J’ai développé une passion pour le jardinage quand j’étais enfant, et, aujourd’hui, pour moi, l’agriculture biologique semble être la seule façon durable de cultiver la terre.
Semer la graine avec le forum sur le jardinage! Samedi le 23 mars à la vieille école de Hopetown.
