Cultivating the essential

What does the phrase “Cultivate the essential” inspire in you?

“In the context of my profession, I find that this phrase takes on its full meaning and I aspire to “cultivate the essential”which for me is to exchange, transmit my passion and my knowledge with the public. They need to rediscover this human link and return to the basics: communication, exchange, sharing.”

The Trégor is a very beautiful region with an interesting variety of landscapes and especially with a very singular cultural heritage!
