Quand les actes agricoles sont au care et au compagnonnage : L’exemple de la biodynamie

Abstract : This paper extends the analysis of the breacking of the materialistic relations between humans and animals to the vegetals. To do so, theories about care and plant turn are confronted with our field datas about biodynamic wine growing in France. We want to show that sensitive relations of care and companionship towards agricultural plants are not only posible far away from the western world. Indeed, recognizing a certain agentivity of the plants, comunicating in specific ways with them, and more broadly, the bluring of the ontological diferenciation with agriculture vegetable are behaviours that one can also observe « at home », in western countries.
