Raising awareness of agro-ecology by promoting peas and legumes
This project, which is in its 3rd edition, is part of an agricultural basin shared between cane cultivation and market gardening tradition. It aims to revive the production of the different varieties of peas as a basis for traditional meals. In a context of controlling meat consumption in terms of environmental impacts, emphasizing vegetable proteins is a way of offering an alternative that respects nature and the population's energy needs. In addition, it is well established that leguminous plants also contribute to good soil health. This project of the municipality of Anse-Bertrand is part of a larger project led by the urban community of northern Grande-Terre to supply the central kitchen with local products in a logic of short circuits offering a complementary income to farmers in the area.
