Every now and then I meet someone who inspires and amazes me with their passion for growing food and living in tune with their land. One such person is Jean-Luc Danneyrolles who is a gardener-philosopher who has started growing little-remembered plants and herbs,and lots of beautiful vegetables, common and rare. He sells his creations in the Apt marketplace on Sat. morning and opens his garden to visitors during the warmer months.
He grows and sells seeds, flowers, plants and vegetables at his idyllic property in a lush, gently sloping valley, near Apt.
He grows everything without chemicals and is dedicated to a simple life, full of biodiversity and the love of slow....
He writes books and is part of many groups such as Slow Food etc.
There is a room full of his seeds which he saves and sells.
Everywhere there are artistic creations and, actually, he very much reminded me of Deb.
