The town of Mouans-Sartoux has historically be strongly connected to the perfumers of Grasse and had a large agricultural perfume plant farming. In recent decades, economic and land pressure have pushed agriculture away from the area.
The Agenda 21 of the city has set a goal of achieving food self-sufficiency capacity within our territory. In the same time, we aimed at developing a project seeking to reach 100% organic and local food served for lunch meals in the canteens of Mouans Sartoux Schools.
The city hired a municipal farmer who produces vegetables eaten every lunch by the students. In October 2012 the urbanism local plan has decided to triple the amount of agricultural areas of the city. It remains a strong act on the Riviera where the land is highly sought for real estate. Since then, the city has decided to help farming development within its territory by supporting new farms creation on our territory (subsidizing creation, farming land protection within the territory, etc.).
