On the occasion of this day, Jean-Yves Meignen presents the dry garden of the abbey whose plants live without any watering. After several years of observation, he shares with us this experience rich in lessons at a time when water management is becoming a real ecological concern in Provence and everywhere else.
In autumn 2012, more than 300 plant species selected for their resistance to drought and cold were planted in a landscaped area of ​​the garden of the abbey of Valsaintes. In 2021, the dry garden has expanded with many other varieties of plants including a collection of succulents. This place will therefore be in the spotlight all day.
Two meetings with Jean-Yves Meignen on the theme of the garden without watering.
    11 a.m.: demonstration of planting in the heart of the dry garden of Valsaintes
    3:00 p.m.: conference on the dry garden
