“Each of us can make a difference but together we make a change” – Barbara Mikulski
It is possible to eat healthily and improve our environment at the same time. We can stop junk food and its health consequences, as well as the massive destruction of biodiversity. Thanks to agroecology and permaculture, we can live better, find meaning and harmony between humans and with nature. Let's go.
PERMA-PROJECTS aims to initiate and support permaculture and agroecology projects in Belgium, starting with the launch of two micro-farms: La Ferme Agroécologique de la Préale in the Condroz area and La Ferme Agroécologique de la Papelotte in Waterloo, near Brussels. On each of these micro-farms, several projects are already being developed: market gardening, seed production, herbalist, transformation, initiation and training.
There are many obstacles to the creation of micro-farms. Agricultural land is expensive and the initial investment to start a business is heavy.
The "industrialized" agri-food system is at an impasse. There are alternatives... The main challenge is to make them economically viable in countries where the cost of labour is high.
PERMA-PROJECTS is a srl created by Nicolas Janssen, Charles-Antoine Janssen, Anne Sophie Pijcke and Olivier Lefebvre who coordinates all projects.
Two pilote micro-farms
This project was initiated in 2018, with the identification of the two sites, the constitution of teams, the legal set-up, the design, the preparation of permit files, etc... 2019 will be devoted to the development of the market gardening sites and the identification of distribution channels. It is now the 4th season of production of super-tasty fruits and vegetables, and other projects joined the farms. Come and visit us...
