It animates Bâtir Groupé’s properties with events such as public dinners, facilitator formations, permaculture gardens, trips to other eco-places, … Smala also supports the creation of micro-companies, with its partner (internships, jobs, self-employed workers). Ecopol is a label as well as services for the life quality between families, seniors, creative people, disabled or transitioning people.
