Historical

ERRA was founded in January 2020 to innovate and pioneer the future of agriculture. I want to participate in sustainable development and improve the health of individuals through an innovative form of agriculture: hydroponics. 

My job is to provide access to locally grown healthy fruits and vegetables, to reconnect people to nature and to transmit values of environmental protection. 

My mission is to participate in local agricultural production in urban settings, inspiring locals and different communities to grow their own fresh produce in a cleaner, simpler and more efficient way through Aeroponic Towers.

Based in Le Havre, ERRA offers a wide variety of urban agriculture services, including the planning, management, maintenance of these vegetated sites and the promotion of hydroponics and its benefits.

In partnership with Agrotonomy, I'm using the aeroponic towers technology to grow fruits, vegetables and aromatics on any indoor or outdoor space.

The sustainable development of territories through installing aeroponic towers in abandoned or unvalued spaces.

Profile

Always passionate about plants and self-taught at heart, I started an apprenticeship in horticulture. From 2015 to 2017 I worked on two organic market gardening farms, one mechanized and the other in agroecology.

In 2017 I decided to embark on entrepreneurship by creating my organic market gardening operation in Cauville-sur-mer in partnership with the city of Le Havre.

Following the success of this project, at the beginning of 2020 I launched a new greening activity in an urban environment thanks to hydroponics, by creating the ERRA project.

Innovation

To succeed in its economic, ecological, technological and societal changes and to be part of the territories at the forefront, the Urban Community of Le Havre has launched the Le Havre, Smart Port City project alongside more than 80 private and public partners.

Le Havre, Smart Port City is the 2019 winner of the “Territories of Innovation” call for projects initiated by the State. The project brings together companies, researchers, associations, industrialists and public institutions around twenty actions.

The objectives of the projects are to innovate in order to implement new ways of collaborating, producing, exchanging, communicating, circulating and living on a daily basis on the territory of the metropolis and then the Seine axis.
