Gardens in the city
Farmer designers, the off-site exhibition
9 thematic gardens are taking their place in different areas of Bordeaux on the occasion of the exhibition Farmer designers: an art of living.
Within the framework of the Resources cultural season, 9 planted spaces are taking their place in different areas of the city from May onwards.
Sponsored by farmers, designers such as Anne Fischer and figures from the world of ecology such as Pierre Rabhi and Gilles Clément, these gardens take the form of large planters specially created by the designer François Bauchet and inspired by manufacturing techniques and materials from the farming world. Developed to be modular, transportable and durable, they will be reused at the end of the exhibition to create shared gardens in the city. These plantations focus on themes with a direct link to the exhibition such as farmer seeds, pollination and intercropping. These flowers, cereals, fruit and vegetables are accompanied by educational panels and are places to share and pass on knowledge for local residents and schools. All highlight the essential role of biodiversity in the working of ecosystems. The installation and maintenance of these spaces and the organisation of events throughout the exhibition will be made possible thanks to the collaboration of associations and institutions active in the region.
