The 2021 Nature Festival 19th-23rd May

The Nature Festival is back with over a thousand events happening all over France and several events you shouldn’t miss close to our hotels.

Cancelled last year, the Nature Festival – the biggest of its kind in France – is back with a new theme, “A travers mille et un regards” which means something like “A thousand different approaches”, their way of showcasing the many different ways of preserving biodiversity.

Each event will be held in small groups to make things safe, and there are several propositions close to our hotels.

In the Jardin de Plantes, a poetic guided walk is happening on 22nd May from 4-5pm. As you are taken through the gardens, poets will recite, read and sing nature-themed poems. More info here.

In the jardin du Château ouvrier in the 14th arrondissement, on the afternoon of 21st May, you can discover the seeds of heirloom cereals, presented by the non-profit group Les Graines de Noé.

The garden has many examples of heirloom cereals growing that you can check out, and they’ll happily teach you how to preserve your seeds and grow them successfully.

There’s even a seed swap on offer! More info here.
