“The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food […] The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it” (Genesis 2: 9-15)
The third pillar of our ministry is the field of farming and the care brought to the creation in which God has placed us.
We consider our responsibility to rediscover a healthy relationship to nature, far from both the oppressive notions that outrageously subject creation to the satisfaction of mankind’s selfish desires and the ideas that negate the specific role played by humanity in the stewardship of God’s property entrusted to us.
The garden of wonders
Produced by a considerable effort and many volunteers’ work hours, this garden has settled on the remnant of a henhouse. It is open to the members of the association as well as to the participants of our activities and is both a means to show hospitality as a place of meditation and retreat. It allows people to recharge their batteries, to rest and offers a place of interaction.
A snapshot at the work in progress
We are experimenting permaculture on four gardening slots. Permaculture is an innovative method of biological farming production.
