For 25 years now, nature lovers and people with a passion for gardening have come to "Jardins d’Aywiers" to celebrate twice a year. They meet up, chat, buy and sell, listen and exchange their experiences and advice. The topics follow one another naturally, keeping pace with the seasons and reflecting the concerns of visitors, who worry about the well-being of the earth, gardeners and our planet. They marvel at the interaction. Encourage each other to care for their life-giving gardens sensibly, peacefully and respectfully. This year’s theme, ‘sustainable gardening’, encompasses all of this. It’s an approach that preserves natural resources, air, water, soil, fauna and flora to ensure that future generations can enjoy them too.
