Emile shows us in video the steps to prepare the raised beds of cultivation. First step: loosening the soil with the Campagnole!
The Campagnole is a particularly interesting tool when practicing permaculture in the garden.
Invented by Vincent Legris, in collaboration with the Bec Hellouin farm, it consists of an “improved grelinette” with 2 wheels to make it easier to move.
It has two rows of teeth, one of which penetrates the soil, while the second remains on the surface and breaks up the clods and keeep the soil on the cultivation mound.
Easy to use, it is very effective in loosening and aerating a cultivation area while respecting the soil’s life.
Next step: the beds are levelled and covered with compost!
