Company

History

Landing in Nepal in March 2014, a French volunteer named Thomas Hénoux travelled to Chaughada to build a restaurant for a Nepali family. Being treated as a Nepali and loved as a son Thomas found his home and a place to develop an eco-responsible project. In late 2014, EOL found a property and rent it from a Nepali family, since then it's improving and renewing the fields and the house.

Causes

During his first stay, Thomas has witnessed the widespread use of fertilizers and pesticides, and the use of GMO seeds which are endangering the health of traditional Nepali farmers and families. Attractive costs and promises of impressive yield are really convincing for locals farmers. Moreover they must invest in several materials and tools to produce this GMO.

Goals

EOL was registered in August 2014 with the original goal to be fully operational by October 2018. The purpose of the company as a social entreprise is to run an eco-tourism center providing free organic training and seed production.

Permaculture

There are seven principles of permaculture, a process of designing agricultural techniques which work in harmony with the local ecosystem. It is a holistic process, and combines natural biological feedback with self sustainability, community training, new tools and techniques.

Permaculture works with nature instead of against it. By working smarter, not harder, we can build community resilience at the same time as biological diversity.

Team

"Meeting"

Thomas Hénoux is French and was a team leader for roofing specialized in historical monuments. Nepal was just supposed to be a five months volunteering mission in the countryside. Thomas imagined, created and registered EOL to show an Eco-self-sustainable example to remote places such as Chaughada in Nepal.

Partnership

Organic Land Eureka has the ambition to find partners they can be individuals, associations, businesses, and non-governmental organizations. EOL research that they are serious and motivated partners who want to take an active part in this challenging project in Nepal.

Project

Farming

Using principles of agroforestry and permaculture we intent to:

  • Increase crops consumed locally while preserving the self-sufficiency of the population.
  • Develop Nepali farmer training seduced by this kind or method of production.
  • Improving the valuation and stimulation of complementarities between trees and crops.
  • Protection of soil and water, particularly in sensitive areas (slick surface,...)
  • Improvement of biodiversity, including the abundance of hedge effects.

Breeding

The establishment of a complete ecosystem requires the presence of animals whose growth is controlled :

  • By the stimulation of hyperparasites populations to naturally protect crops against pests.
  • By considering them not exclusively as a source of meat, fur, skin or eggs.
  • By increasing pollinating insects presence in the fields.

Tourism

By staying in EOL's hub for the lenght which suits you, you will enjoy a preserved calm and resourceful place and be able to delight :

  • The discovery of controlled and responsible agriculture.
  • The discovery of a still preserved, ancestral lifestyle.
  • The discovery of the surrounding natural beauty : the mountains of Langtang.
  • Gossaïkund frozen lakes accessible by trek.
