Support Oasis Citadine at the checkout in Maisons du Monde stores as part of the ARRONDI en caisse scheme 

Oasis Citadine is the current project benefitting from the ARRONDI en caisse scheme in all Maisons du Monde stores in France. The association works to create ecological corridors that promote biodiversity near Montpellier.

From Tuesday, 30 May 2023, all the micro-donations of spare change through the ARRONDI en caisse scheme in Maisons du Monde stores across France will be donated to Oasis Citadine to be put towards its project “Agroforestry and viticulture: creation of ecological corridors that promote biodiversity”.

Spotlight on the association’s project

Located on the Château de Flaugergues wine estate, just outside of the city of Montpellier, Oasis Citadine wants to establish the city’s first collaborative urban farm to help raise awareness and provide training. With this project, the Château de Flaugergues hopes to maintain a successful wine-growing business in the face of urban land pressure and the difficult climate context that the estate is already facing.

Therefore, a 15-hectare area of cultivated vines will be rethought with a view to transitioning it to an agroforestry model that promotes biodiversity. As well as restoring trees and hedges, the Oasis Citadine project aims to reconnect citizens with nature and rebuild social ties. The association then wishes to extend this initiative to the Ferme de la Condamine and Parc de Grammont farms, also in the Montpellier area.

Funds collected through the ARRONDI en caisse scheme will enable the association to:

  • Improve agricultural production practices in order to maximise the potential of vine plots
  • Anticipate climate, societal and economic changes through diversification of produce
  • Educate and raise awareness by allowing members of the public to participate in volunteer tree planting projects and/or agroecology events
