Every year, the French Ministry of Culture puts on an enchanting weekend of events in the gardens throughout France. In 2016, the event is scheduled for June 3rd-5th, in more than 2300 parks and gardens and includes guided visits, exhibitions, workshops, meetings and demonstrations.
The annual “Rendez-vous aux Jardins,” meaning “Rendezvous in the Gardens,” is a time to discover or rediscover the parks, gardens and vegetable gardens in our regions. So what would you say to a little stroll in the greenery on June 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2016?
The purpose of the “Rendez-vous in the Gardens” event is to share the important actions that the Ministry of Culture and Communication has taken to maintain the country’s parks and gardens.
For three days, more than 2300 parks and gardens will be open to the public, 500 of those open exceptionally, putting on over 4000 public events throughout France. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover outdoor spaces that are usually closed to the public.
This year, the theme is “Colors of the Garden,” taken from a quote by Charles Baudelaire, who explained that in a painting, the scents, colors and sounds respond to one another.” Gardeners are artists that play with flowers to create true living works of art, paintings in colors and in scents that create emotions for those who take the time to look at them.
Some activities will be specifically organized for children, including gardening workshops and skill demonstrations...to put the spotlight on year-long children’s events,
