The donkeys of the Grand Potager

The donkeys of the Grand Potager du Domaine de Fontenille contribute to the fertility of the garden soil. They produce a local and natural manure transformed into the composting area of the garden.
On other farms, in permaculture, such as the Bec Hellouin for example, donkeys are used for the preparation of the soil with traditional tools, allowing a passage on steep lands unaccessible with a tractor, and without use of fossil energy.
