A trip to the water canal (Canal du Midi) UNESCO in Toulouse. Canal du Midi is 240 km long, it is situated between Toulouse and Sete in France and it was built between 1666-1682. The idea of joining the Atlantic ocean with the Mediterranean sea in order to avoid the journey across the Strait of Gibraltar has its origins in ancient times and revived in the 16th century. Nowadays, this unique construction is a popular landmark for tourists. In 1996, Canal du Midi was included in the list of UNESCO Heritage Sites.

Leonardo Agropuzzle - Thursday 24/11/2011
The next day we went to the city market, where we could find various kinds of fruit and vegetables, sea fish, prawns and other seafood. Then we visited a farm in Cotton which is focused on pigs and poultry breeding. Moreover, the farm offers interesting environmental programs for children. The highlight of the day was the visit to the centre of permaculture in Les Portes Neuves. The owners of the centre, an English couple, explained us how to live in accordance with the idea of permanently maintainable development. We found out that the permaculture represents an innovative approach to the agriculture, nature and environment. It is a way to avoid excessive exploitation of natural resources. It is a possibility to maintain the way of life permanently. It is important to realize that the nature sets certain boundaries which cannot be crossed.

The meeting of students and teachers, who are involved in the program Leonardo Agropuzzle, took place between 21 and 25 November 2011 and it was organized by the Secondary School of Agriculture from Auch. We had a possibility to see not only a school in Lavacant where we stayed during our stay, but also a very nice school in Beaulieu. We could see farming methods in the school farm and other private farms. We visited a conservation area Natura 2000 Resérvoir du Lizet and a centre of permaculture in Les Portes Neuves. Our organization Natura Opava was particularly interested in the countryside of the Midi-Pyrénées, agricultural management, farming, system of nature conservation Natura 2000 and centre of permaculture, which represents an example of the permanently maintainable development. We admired UNESCO Heritage Sites and we did not forget to visit Paris. The project involves students and teachers from secondary schools of agriculture from Opava (Czech Republic), Komorno (Poland), Levice (Slovakia), Preveza (Greece) and non-profitable organization Natura Opava. The last meeting of the participants in the project will be held in 2012 and it will be organized by the secondary school from Komorno. We are looking forward to it.
