La Combe buildings

The Eco Etho Research & Education Centre at La Combe, is an extension of the Eco Farm established in 1996 at Little Ash Eco Farm. It moved to in December 2003 to set up and run an experimental/demonstration Ecological Farm and Nature Reserve in the mountains of the pre-Alps in the Drome region. This is the fifth experimental/demonstration ecological farm that the research team have developed.

In 2005, an Association of supporters of the Centre was created. We are now relaunching the Association. If interested please fill in the Membership Form and return it to us at the Center.
