Mountain guide and trainer in Botany
Graduate of the State Brevet d'Alpinisme 1er Degrees, passionate about bushcraft and wild cuisine, I spend most of my time in the mountains, in the middle of nature. I am a fan of Botany, Ethnobotany, Biology and Philosophy of Science. I organize stays and discovery courses around wild, edible and medicinal plants, from the Mediterranean coast to the high alpine pastures of the southern Alps.
My philosophy is that of sharing knowledge, giving access to autonomy. For me, botany is not a hobby, I consider it as general culture, essential to a good understanding of the world and ecology. I am an advocate of pedagogy and I am convinced that it should be accessible to everyone, not just insiders or curious people.
