L’Hort de L’Alé reflects in its name the essence of the Christian-Marc Olmos vente Foundation: “Make life your prayer”.

L’Aléin English “the breath”, represents gratitude and respect for the best we have been given: life itself.

The “7 Fables of L’Alé” are based on real experiences of lizards, badgers, birds, bees, trees, insects… that coexist in a harmonious environment. They are written with respect for sustainable nature and with a positive educational philosophy. ( Download pdf )

This action is framed within the Foundation’s objectives of sustainability and solidarity, and more than 15,000 kilos of mandarines have already been delivered since its inception.
