Le Clos des tomates - Ephemeral garden

Created as a Temporary Garden by horticulturist Baptiste Pierre, this new garden area at the Maison de la Fontaine immerses us in the wonderful world of tomatoes. Throughout the Dans les Jardins de William Christie Festival, visitors large and small will be able to discover one hundred species of this tasty fruit! 

The ephemeral vegetable garden will be open to the public during the festival Dans les Jardins de William Christie, which will take place in Thiré, Vendée from August 24th to August 31th.
