{simple pleasures} le recyclerie: guerrilla gardening in paris

Saturday, April 8, 2017


"i think that the way animals live in the tropics, stepping outside in the morning and evening to see if there is something to eat, and taking a long nap in the afternoon, must be a wonderful life. for human beings, a life of such simplicity would be possible if one worked to produce directly his daily necessities. in such a life, work is not work as people generally think of it, but simply doing what needs to be done. masanobu fukuoka

{today's simple pleasures}






the art of farming: another happy discovery in paris. a dusty train station turned dynamic cafe, bar + organic farm. this new venue {from the makers of comptoir general cafe} is full of sunlight + good food; upcycled decor + passionate gardeners. this is where ingredients are picked fresh from an onsite garden/farm + the service can't be beat. vegan pizza on the menu.

craving more veg goodness? here's a list of 14 plant-powered cafes in paris

read more about japanese farmer + philosopher, masanobu fukuoka, author of one-straw revolution, a spiritual memoir + natural farming manifesto. his journey towards a life dedicated to farming that used no agricultural chemicals or prepared fertilizers is clear-sighted + galvanizing. this is how a green revolution gets started.

from fukuoka, the father of guerilla gardening: 
"the ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
