Our approach

Go take your lessons from Nature, that's where our future lies! - Leonardo da Vinci

The earth is our destiny

Everywhere, the living world is in retreat, and human beings are suffering from this degradation of nature. Links are increasingly being established between pesticides and various diseases, and farmers are the first victims. They also suffer from a food system that exploits them.
What's more, the countryside is emptying out, despite a small back-to-the-land movement emerging...

Connecting with nature, acting to protect it and, in so doing, reinventing new ways of living in harmony with ourselves and our fellow members of the living community, with greater meaning, joy and resilience...

Over the last 40 years, we've lost...

The educational farm

In Auvergne

After ten years in Paris, Fanny Agostini and Henri Landes settled in 2019 on a farm in Boisset, Haute-Loire, to live closer to nature and run educational, awareness-raising and entrepreneurial projects serving the territories of Auvergne and its youth! They created Landestini to educate, raise awareness and engage the general public in favor of climate preservation and biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, agroecology, agroforestry and other related causes. The Landestini farm is surrounded by 3.5 hectares of land, with an orchard and vegetable garden. Fanny and Henri also maintain a paddock with goats, horses and a henhouse.

Expert advice

The Strategic and Technical Orientation Council is an advisory body to the Landestini fund. Agriculture and livestock breeding, food and nutrition, biodiversity, climate, water, audiovisual, local economy... these are all complex and fascinating subjects that deserve expert knowledge and insight. We are supported by a team of competent and motivated individuals who are involved in our projects on an ad hoc or regular basis. All members act in a personal capacity, without any commitment on the part of their organization or their professional status.
