Our garden terraces
Our gardens are adapting to their environment a little more each year. The trees and shrubs are setting down roots and getting taller and broader. Our buildings now look like they have always belonged, our medicinal herb roof is flourishing and our new visitor’s pavilion is nestling in at wood’s edge. Despite overly abundant rainfall on summer 2008, our drainage was adequate and we had excellent control of runoff by directing the excess water toward our irrigation basins and setting up a rainwater tank to supply the zero-gravity toilets in our garden office. Thanks to this “frog” water, we can use our garden office until December, which allows us to finish compiling data and completing our medicinal herb cultivation research.
Last year, we welcomed about 900 people, enchanted by their visit. We had a big year moving all our facilities under the same roof. Her it is, Clef des Champs new head office is now sitting between river and mountain! We are definitively well set and we are working on season 2012, opening slowly the green house and looking forward to welcome you once again this summer!
