Terres d'Athes - Alpinstore
"What is Les Terres d'Athes? A citizens' association, a common project, a desire for transition...
A desire to test alternatives to ourusualways oflife and to respond to a need, while respecting the human being and the environment.
We want to create a place where we dare to undertake, to experiment and especially to share!
An association of transition, a social and economic project through a vegetarian eco-environment and more concretely of the sensitization during festivals, participative building sites to make that accessible to a broad public
The activities :
- raising awareness of ecology, zero waste and transition
- permaculture
- personal development
- animal rescue....
Many future projects, such as the construction of a boulder wall, hammocks in the trees, we are also sensitive to the respect of the great outdoors, in the mountains or in festivals such as the natural games because the mountain has been democratized and people respect unfortunately less and less.
A personaldevelopment "reconnection with nature": hiking, meditation in nature, vegetarian cooking. "

Les Terres d'Athes offers us some photos to illustrate their activities:

  • A permaculture vegetable garden, creation of a composter for food scraps
  • Greenhouse made from recycled materials (windows, shelves, etc.)
