Jardins Ouverts: two days devoted to biodiversity
This year, the event highlights the diversity of local productions. From watercress from Méréville (91) to peach from Montreuil (93), from peppermint from Milly-la-Forêt (91) to champignon de Paris (75), visitors will discover the richness of Ile-de-France cultures. As a reminder, Ile-de-France is a land of culture with 78% of wooded and agricultural land. It is therefore possible to eat locally in Ile-de-France.

Jardins Ouverts: from heritage gardens to urban farms
Jardins Ouverts in Ile-de-France also offers access to exceptional sites, which over a weekend offer gastronomic and cultural activities (dance, music, circus, literature, theatre). This year, the Musée-jardin Bourdelle (77) and the property Caillebotte (91) are entering alongside the Potager du Roi (78), the vegetable and fruit garden of the Château de la Roche-Guyon (95) and the GoodPlanet Foundation in Paris. Heritage gardens, shared, private, educational, workers, collective and urban farms (or rooftop gardens) will share their secrets!
