The project was inspired by Cecilia Aguirre, on a very beautiful site within the Natural Park of the Haute Vallée de Chevreuses.
The practice of natural dyes and a desire for consistency provoked the call of the earth and the gentle implementation of this project in 2014. Since then, the farm has been shaped step by step…

The genesis of the project, here in video:



Installed as a farmer (secondary activity) in 2017, the installation is done gradually, both in relation to the time spent and in relation to the developments which are totally self-financed (no agricultural aid possible for solidarity contributors).

2018, a small greenhouse was installed.

2019, the big plant dryer project was completed. AMAP Tinctilis was born and sales began.

2020, the micro-farm is fully certified organic farming by Ecocert.

This is the year of the establishment of an irrigation system, with the constraints of not connecting to the network. Innovative and low-tech solutions are to be found.

The production of aromatic and medicinal plants begins.

In 2021, new areas must be cultivated to increase the production of aromatic and medicinal plants under the care of Mike Metz.

Norbert Amougou is in charge of developing an experimental market garden orchard.

C'est l'année de la mise en place d'un système d'irrigation, avec les contraintes du non raccordement au réseau. Des solutions innovantes et low-tech sont à trouver.

La production de plantes aromatiques et médicinales débute.

En 2021, de nouveaux espaces doivent être mis en culture pour accroitre la production de plantes aromatiques et médicinales sous les soins de Mike Metz.
