THE 2015 GARDEN FESTIVAL

 

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).
