Les jardins de la grelinette | Bio-intensive farm
Intro by
"A small organic farm in St-Armand, QC, Canada. There, Maude-Hélène and Jean-Martin Fortier have been cultivating one hectare of land for a good ten years, growing 40 varieties of vegetables that they market directly - and live well with. "The key to success is to move away from a tractor-oriented approach to a people-oriented approach," said the Fortiers at a conference.

Their microfarm is one of the best-known examples of new agricultural concepts, “which have impressive effects due to their systemic approach. They are very productive on small areas and are called bio-intensive agriculture, market gardening or micro-farms,” writes the Stiftung Ökologie&Landbau (SÖL) for explanation. “Inspired by agricultural ecology and permaculture, they are economically profitable, ecologically valuable and socially respectful. Their low investment costs make these concepts particularly interesting for young people wishing to enter the agricultural sector.”

Solar Impulse Foundation - Bridging the gap between ecology and economy
"One of the first to envision ecology through the lens of profitability, Bertrand Piccard has always advocated that protection of the environment would become a reality only if it was perceived as economically viable and requiring no financial or behavioural sacrifices. He actively speaks out against the absurdity of old and polluting devices and systems, and promotes the benefits of new existing efficient technologies and solutions to motivate governments and industries to take action. A way to prove that solving climate change – rather than an expensive problem – is a fantastic market opportunity."

One of the main programs of the Solar Impulse Foundation is their Label:

"For the first time a label proves the economic profitability of solutions that protect the environment
selecting 1,000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way and awarding them the Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions Label.

This label serves as a new and credible symbol that can be applied to products, processes and services and serves as a guarantee of quality to those looking to implement clean solutions, and affords a competitive edge to the innovators behind them.

Assessed by independent experts for their technological feasibility, environmental and socio-economic benefits, and economic profitability, a portfolio of these solutions will be brought to decision-makers to encourage them to adopt much more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies."
