The Take-Away Garden

Gardens of the future

How to make the world a delight once more by developing and preserving biodiversity? This was the 2011 challenge taken up by hundreds of teams from all over the world for the 20th Chaumont-sur-Loire Garden Festival (France – Loire castles).

I really loved strolling through the vast domain and
let myself be surprised by each of the gardens and their fragrant colourful projects, with their original flavours.

Let’s enter The Take-Away Garden. Empty bags recuperated from a construction site give birth to orchards, forests, maritime heath and marshes.

“Imagine a world where each citizen has the opportunity to take care of their own micro-habitat”. This is the invitation launched by the three English Creators.

Dear Future Shapers, surely we all have a little space on our terrace, car park or garden to grow our own little corner of paradise haven’t we?

“We can all make a difference”.
