Les Vilmorin, des graines & des hommes – Paris (France)

The Vilmorin, from seeds to men: colloquium organised by the Société Nationale d’Horticulture de France (French National Horticultural Society) and the French Academy of Agriculture, on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the Vilmorin family in Verrières le Buisson.

For six generations, the Vilmorin family has offered a fertile contribution towards botany, plant improvement and the introduction of new plant species. The land and buildings of Verrières were the first laboratories and experimental plots in France for plant genetics and improvement.
The aim of this event is to demonstrate how botanic knowledge, acclimatisation and the selection of a great diversity of plants can contribute towards French scientific and cultural heritage, and towards the economic and social development of sectors whose quality is renowned.
