Pierre Robbie, agronomist and author, has died

Writer and philosopher Pierre Rabhi, co-founder of the Colibris movement, the agro-ecological figure in France, has died at the age of 83, AFP learned from his family on Saturday. The AFP told his son Viani that he had died on Saturday following a cerebral hemorrhage, particularly acclaimed by personalities such as Cyril Dion and Marion Cotillard, an environmental activist who had sold over 460,000 copies, “towards a happy temperance”.

This pioneer of neo-ruralism settled in 1961 on a farm in the south of France. Born in 1938 at the gates of the Algerian Sahara, Pierre Robbie was one of the pioneers of agriculture – an agricultural practice aimed at recreating the natural environment without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Used once in sub-Saharan Africa since the 1980s, where he made numerous trips.
