Paroles de Jardiniers Festival
Jardins Florian origins and inspiration go back to Versailles gardens and History...
Therefore it is only fair that we dedicate a few lines to the first ever Paroles de Jardiniers Gardening Festival happening in Versailles and the Yvelines region between September 8 and September 30, 2012.
Paroles de Jardiniers ('Gardeners' Words' in English) is the poetic name of this gardening festival and we are invited tonight to the Grand Opening which takes place in nothing less than the "Galerie des Cotelle du Grand Trianon".

From Saturday, September 8 2012 to Sunday, September 30 2012, visitors will be able to learn all about gardening.
The event promotes encounters between professional gardeners and amateur ones. Indeed, passionate exhibitors will share their experience about gardening and botany in general.
In addition to the four main events held in prestigious venues in the Yvelines region, the Paroles de Jardiniers festival is part of a unique approach that involves individuals, associations and public venues who will open their garden gates to visitors (by appointment and in small groups).
The festival ethos aims at encouraging exchanges among people, professionals and amateurs in search of advice on gardening, as well as highlighting more environment-friendly practices and the transmission of knowledge to younger generations.
The programme for this first festival is as follows:
Sunday, September 9: Day in Versailles
Sunday, September 16: Gally open farm, Saint-Cyr School
Sunday September 23: The King's Kitchen Garden
Sunday, September 30: Park and Chateau de Thoiry
In total, visitors will enjoy forty events and encounters in the most beautiful Yvelines gardens, with over 200 activities organised.
We thank our friends at My Green ID who invited us in view of our Versailles origins and our passion for gardening and the environment. (Merci Julie Coignet! You can follow her on Twitter: @juliecoignet)
