  • An AMAPat the UPVD
The AMAP* of the UPVD offers every week on the Windmill campus baskets of fruit, vegetables, cheese, honey and breads from organic and entirely local agriculture.

It is possible to buy seasonal fruit and vegetables every week on the Windmill campus thanks to AMAP* Energie Citoyenne. At 9 or 17 €, the AMAP offers baskets for 1 or 2 people made up of products from the production of 2 organic market gardeners from Llupia, certified Ecocert.

  • Products from October to April: salads, chard, spinach, kohlrabi, leeks, beets, mustard, arugula, various cabbages, tender onions, yellow onions.
  • Products from April to September: strawberries, beans, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, grapes, peaches, apricots..
* An AMAP (Association for the Maintenance of Peasant Agriculture) is a partnership between a group of citizens and a peasant farm who mutually commit themselves: some to pre-finance production, others to ensure the said production.

  • Cam'Pousse Association
The Cam'Pousse association is a student association born four years ago. It aims to create a shared garden on the university campus, with the help of dedicated spaces. Open to all students, the association owns since this year four gardens on the Windmill campus. In the near future, student members of the association will enhance these four grounds, notably by doing permaculture.

This work allows students, sometimes uninitiated, to learn how to cultivate and produce good quality fruits and vegetables without pesticides. Part of the harvest will be distributed to members and the other part will be given to underprivileged students. An ecological and solidarity initiative!
