Discover this stunning garden at the heart of Courcelles. This former urban wasteland now features educational vegetable patches, areas for wildflowers, a wide variety of birds, mammals and insects.
The different areas
- Educational vegetable patches where 350 varieties of vegetables, condiments and herbs are grown
- An experimental field for permaculture, organic composting
- A wild tree planted area leaving plenty of space for herbs, orchids... to spread
- Another tree planted area (beech, ash trees...)
All are home to mammals (squirrels, voles...), birds (sparrows, titmice, woodpeckers, jays...) and insects (bees, ladybirds, chrysoprase, machaons...).
A didactic focus
"Understanding and learning to better protect" is the motto of this garden... hence its different approach:
- socio-professional insertions garden (training for green trades)
- educational garden (training, teaching, raising awareness)
- garden for exchanges with the public
- natural garden (managing green spaces, valorising species)
- garden for all senses (touching, smelling, listening, tasting, observing...)
- playful garden (games and animations)
