L’OCCITANE France and the L’OCCITANE Foundation are supporting an agroforestry project in Provence, one of the regions that is likely to suffer most from climate change in France, with issues related to access to water and the protection of crops and animals against extreme climatic events (droughts, heat waves, fires, violent storms, etc.).
Agroforestry and regenerative agriculture are practices that consist in the establishment of plant coverings that have the capacity to protect crops and soil life by protecting them from heat and sunlight and creating organic matter, which can feed the soil and plants.
The plantation projects are led by farmers themselves. Their commitment in such initiative contributes to an agriculture revolution, to carbon offsetting and to the creation of sustainable landscapes for the future generations. There is also an economic impact because diversifying agricultural production and short circuit sales allow to generate complementary revenues for producers.
