Permaculture at La Gendronniere

Permaculture zen temple La Gendronnière - France

To take part in the events associated with this project, please have a look at our agenda by selecting the Permaculture activity.


From its foundation, the La Gendronnière Zen Temple nurtures and cherishes its vast 80ha estate with care, gratitude and respect.
Today, we naturally get inspired by permaculture methods in order to walk along and not against that which we call “nature”. The art of growing food becomes the art of non-separation between man and nature.
A global project is emerging for the temple, with a 30-year perspective, and practical measures for the next 2 to 5 years. Energy transition, carbon footprint reduction, fair sharing, in a community made of human beings, plants and animals : this is our challenge.
