Created in the spring of 2015, Evergreen’s organic vegetable garden was established on a former horse paddock.
Now transformed, the ground remains full of nutrients and the perfect location for organic gardening.
Our gardening approach is based on the natural agricultural principles of permaculture. Using a well- considered combination of plants and flowers promotes plant growth and protects them from harmful insects and disease. Using natural and renewable resources such as: straw, nettles and compost, and by practicing vegetable rotation, we allow the soil to regenerate without overusing its nutrients.
Areas of the garden are left untouched to offer biodiversity and a safe environment for insects and birds.
With the seasons, Evergreen’s guests enjoy the fruit of this daily work: abundance of apples (emblematic fruit of the region), quince, walnuts, hazelnuts, pears, cherries, plums, raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries, blackcurrant, blackberries, sea buckthorn, rose hips, figs and persimmons.
A wide range of vegetables is present at Evergreen’s vegetable garden with the amazing productivity of Espelette pepper, more than 15 varieties of tomatoes, squash and pumpkins, potatoes, including the “Bonnotte de Noirmoutier”, the ” Emerald “,” Vitelotte “etc., various beans such as the Armenian Giant Bean and its cousins of multiple colors and shapes.
