Natural water purification
The cellar has a plant-based system for purifying its waste water. It consists of a tank planted with reeds that filter and purify the water. A natural environment has been created, providing a home for animals such as frogs, hedgehogs and birds. Water is becoming an important resource, and we use our purified water for irrigation. It’s interesting to note that, in the beginning, the reeds wouldn’t grow. We didn’t know why, but we installed some cameras and these gave us the answer: they were being stolen by magpies.
