5th Regional heritage encounters – Fontevraud (France)

The study of gardens, along with consideration for their specificities with regards to their maintenance, their conservation and their restoration, date from the last quarter of the 20th century.  This recent attention coincided with a renewed interest in gardens, both by private owners and public institutions. In the Pays de la Loire region, the regional heritage department has listed 3,745 gardens referred to as historic and with a surface area of over one hectare within its five départements: an immense capital with a more or less dense geographical distribution according to topography, the nature of the soil and the different periods during which the gardens were created. The regional heritage encounters will be reviewing this work and will present the different approaches, sciences and skills that can serve our study and our knowledge of gardens.
