Ognon, the Vegetable Garden

agroecological farm of permacultural inspiration

The history of the garden

The land of Ognon is mentioned for the first time in 1197. She belonged at that time to Barthélemy d'Ognon.

A century later, an admission signed by one of his descendants, Regnaut d'Ognon gives an overview of the composition of the estate. It is a manor (hostel) with courtyard, garden and about a hundred acres of woods, partly located near the manor, partly to the Saint-Jean de Senlis wood. The vegetable garden of the Park is the historic garden of this manor.

The kitchen garden today

For several decades, and until recently, the vegetable garden was essentially grown for family use. Today, it retains, in certain places, the characteristics of this era: large paths to walk around, zones of geometric cultures inspired by French gardens.

Today, we are giving new life to the vegetable garden, which we continue to cultivate according to the principles of permaculture, and agroecology: respect for the life of the soil, the association of plants, design conceived under of non-action.

The garden has been evolving ever since. Permaculture, inspired by natural laws, science, but also ancestral practices. That's why we took into account the history and structure of the garden in the design of our Permacole farm.

Now we are proud to offer baskets of natural fruits and vegetables. The crops from which they originate do not undergo human modifications that could interfere with healthy growth of plants - such as the use of pesticides, whether chemical or natural.

Training organization, we welcome throughout the year trainees and woofers, who wish to share with us the idea of ​​a natural agriculture. From the discovery of its principles to the learning of permacultural design, we wish to allow any person who wishes to acquire a solid basis, practical and theoretical, to create and cultivate a garden according to the teachings of permaculture. .
