Une agriculture naturelle
Charles-Hervé Gruyer guides us around the Bec d'Hellouin farm that he founded in Normandy following permaculture principles developed in Australia in the 1970s. Inspired by nature and the ways ecosystems work, here disorder is managed by hedges that protect from the wind and combinations of plants that grow on mounds.
Since 2011, INRA and ParisAgroTech have been studying the farm's yields: it is as productive as conventional farms, but on an area 10 to 12 times smaller...
Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
