A responsible practice

We do not use any pesticides or chemical fertilizers in the garden. We prefer composting and vermicomposting methods. Natural methods, which promote the growth of healthy foods, good for your health.

We recycle all plant waste from the restaurant (growth substrate for decorative herbs, peelings, faded flowers). This allows us to recycle waste into compost and considerably reduces the volume of waste that we give to the city of Toulouse to evacuate.

We only plant organic seeds, selected by us, or self-produced in the heart of our vegetable garden. We do not use artificial heating, while guaranteeing water savings.

A specific method

Passionate about gardening, we were keen to create a vegetable garden worthy of the name. There is a great diversity of plants, aromatics, flavors and textures.
Having a rather small space, we had to organize ourselves to maximize each step and each technique to allow our food to grow in complete serenity.
Thus, we use two techniques in our garden, permaculture and aquaponics.
Permaculture is a set of practices and ways of thinking aimed at developing a territory that is in synergy with nature, so that development is sustainable and ecosystems are respected, even strengthened.

Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a closed-loop constructed ecosystem, using natural bacterial cycles to convert fish waste into plant nutrients.
We even use flowers as a pollinator, or sunflowers for birds, not to mention the insect hotel.
