December 2017, the crowdfunding campaign on the Miimosa platform (member of the digital farm) is launched with the aim of creating a Pedagogical Vine.
The campaign, which ends in February 2018, is a success with 117 contributors and €16,125 raised with major partners such as the Gard Chamber of Agriculture and Groupama.
The project also won the Airbnb & Bienvenue à la ferme award at the 2018 International Agricultural Show. The campaign is also a success in the media with releases in Le Midi Libre, Terre de Vins, M6, France bleu Gard Lozère and Vitisphere.
After a rest from the soil and a methodical preparation, the time came for the planting of the pedagogical vine. Planted on March 4, it is composed of 10 rows with the emblematic grape varieties of the Rhône Valley: 5 reds and 5 whites.
The educational vineyard will be a fun way to explain to visitors the difference between each grape variety and to help understand the growth cycle of the vine in this spirit of sharing that has always animated Claude and his family. Sharing that will make even more sense with the reception of children from the surrounding schools.
Committed to the preservation of the environment and confirmed by the 3 out of 3 HVE certification on its operation (High Environmental Value). Claude and Mathieu wish to continue this commitment on the pedagogical vine and to reflect on it in organic agriculture.
Sharing their passion, educating the consumer and passing on their values to future generations is the very essence of this beautiful project.
