Inspirée par les turbulences nuageuses de l'atmosphère vivifiante des Pyrénées de l'Ariège, notre équipe de jeunes, et de moins jeunes, vous présente de nouvelles dynamiques au service de la protection de la biodiversité alimentaire :


- De nouvelles alliances, avec des producteurs de semences biologiques, nous permettent, dorénavant, d'augmenter nos grammages : les betteraves passent à 6 grammes, les côtes de blettes à 4 ou 6 grammes, les mâches à 4 grammes, les épinards à 10 grammes, de nombreux radis annuels à 6 grammes, certains radis d'hiver à 4 grammes, certains haricots nains à 80 grammes, certains haricots à rames à 60 grammes…


- Ces mêmes nouvelles alliances nous permettent de vous proposer une plus belle diversité en particulier dans certaines espèces de plantes potagères : choux-brocolis, choux-fleurs, choux Chinois, choux-frisés Sibériens, moutardes Japonaises et Indiennes, épinards, carottes, betteraves, radis, laitues… ; mais aussi dans les fleurs annuelles: capucines, calendulas, zinnias…
