New designs and ideas for Permaculture, Agroforestry and small Farmers..Manual Farming Tools that can plant and fertilize large plantations of trees, fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs, flowers and mushrooms, without the need to plow.
All-terrain planters to use in forests, fields and gardens for growing crops, and enhance Biodiversity.
Direct seeding and precise fertilizer application minimize the need to plow the soil and helps rebuild natural soil fertility.

We are working on new light models for hiking and gardening.
An 2003 high-tech patent pending double action piston compressed air seed planter prototype. A no-till all-terrain portable hand tool able to work in very thin rocky soils invented by Sylvain & Patrick Picker in a 3 month full time effort to make a Farm & Forestry hand-tool to plant in any soils. It allows planting of seeds one by one, with a push and pull stroke done by hand, the operator standing upright. A flushed air process improves the seed's planting speed. For this purpose a Double Action Piston has been designed to generate the necessary flushed air at the push and pull stroke. Flushed air is used to move the seed faster than if gravity was used alone to move the seed in this Jab Seeder design. The prototype is made of a four foot long Main Core Tubing, containing or supporting all necessary devices to allow all these functions.
