The Festival International des Jardins in the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire opened its doors last Saturday. This opening took place in circumstances greatly impacted by the health crisis of COVID-19. That’s why ECT is particularly proud of having supported the creation of one of its gardens, “Jardiniers de l’Invisible” or gardeners of the invisible.
In the words of its designers, who are students at the ENSP national landscaping school at Versailles (the École Nationale Supérieure de Paysage), this garden puts a question to the visitor: “How can we restore lost links with our earth, the remarkable original model of living together, sharing and symbiosis?” ECT also co-funds a business chair, “Earth and Landscape”, at the ENSP.
For 6 months, this festival is the don’t-miss international garden venue. Visitors explore a world dedicated to creativity, imagination, poesy and nature, which has been acknowledged as such since 1992 by professionals and by garden lovers. Every year the festival welcomes landscape gardeners and designers from all over the world.
