2019 Theme: La Place du Village

Small improvised space in a city, or large space full of history in the countryside, the village square is an institution for all citizens.
Small debates or revolutions have been going on since Antiquity because it is a place of gathering and exchange.
Symbol of public life, it is a place that embodies freedom, equality and civic participation.
On « La Place du Village » of Carré des Jardiniers, the sweet dreamers of yesterday will meet the passionate of today or perhaps the opposite?

Remember the 2017 theme

« The good care of Doctor Garden »

The nature is generous, feeder, constant, beautiful and rich. Inescapable enjoyments of cities and private houses, parks and garden are also appreciated for their benefactions on the health. Plants, vegetables, flowers, earth, stones, fruits, are so many small treatments which act separately or together for the well-being and the health of people: gardens do good as soon as we take time to look at them, to listen to them, to feel them, to affect them and to enjoy them. A common objective: offer good care to the garden”
