For 14 years the Ephemeral Gardens have been uniting artists, sculpters and amateur gardeners around a communal project which attracts more than 3,000 visitors each year, between the 5st June and the second sunday in October. These artists and gardeners are asked to imagineand create a garden that can be used and enjoyed. In 2015 they were given the theme 'Sculptures aux Jardins' (Sculptures on the gardens).
This year six creators, professional and amateurs were chosen to mix art and nature.
