Why planting a garden is a political act | Louis-Albert De Broglie | TEDxLausanne

TEDx Talks

May 4, 2016

Louis Albert explains the process of assessing scientific, economic and social results from the operating of the ‘Fermes d’Avenir’ (literally farms of the future), for the sake of understanding if these models of farms can be replicated and thus serve the multipurpose of changing the global paradigm. If according to permaculture principles, the problem is the solution, then micro agriculture is the solution to agriculture!

Louis Albert de Broglie was an investment banker before dedicating his time and energy in the preservation of biodiversity. 25 years ago, he created the National Tomato Conservatory in the Loire Valley. Several years later, he saved and modernized one of the world oldest natural sciences institution – Deyrolle. He is now developing a model of micro-farming inspired by permaculture.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
