Last week, we finally picked the little squash from the garden, it was really cute. (text and photo by Inès).

The Pond, part 2

Finally, the pond holds water, is beautiful, attracts wildlife and has proven that we don’t need plastic to have a pond.

New Pond

With Vaclav, the M2 students of EUP, renovated our pond without using any plastic. Using a mixture of sand, bentonite, bricks and shale, it appears to hold water!


A lavender. A brave aromatic plant which traveled from the sunny south of France to the cold north, here in Champs sur Marne. It adapts to its environment, requires no special care and offers a taste and a scent most used for bakery, perfumes, honey-making… Its unique purple flowers are a symbol of Provence.

I came across this beautiful flower in the garden and, on doing more research, I discovered some really interesting facts. It is called « Borago officinalis », it is edible and is used in salads, cooked dishes and drinks. It even has medicinal uses. It comes from the Mediterranean region, but it can be found in gardens all around the world. (text and photo by Milagros)

Oak Tree

This is an oak tree and it is the masterpiece of the garden. First, because it is the highest plant of the garden and so it protects it from the wind or other dangers. The oak tree is also bringing nutrients for plants and animals with its roots and through its falling leaves and tassels. Finally, it is a symbol of the garden and is always beautiful and impressive.

Fall Asters

Unique and wonderful flowers are shining through a green background thanks to their singular color. They look so beautiful and healthy , even after a long time without having been taken care of. Here is the proof that nature’s beauty will always find a way to express itself!  (text and photo by Yassine)

Cherry tomatoes

Cherry tomatoes are some of the sweetest (and the cutest) tomato varieties. Usually red, they can also be yellow, green, purple or even black just like this one (that was quite yummy). (text and photo by Mathilde).

Time bombs

Our new We Are What We Eat folks planted tiny time bombs – crocuses, decorative garlic and more to explode with color in the spring.

Fall planting

The Jardin has been taken over by a new group of students under the lead of Gautier. Lots more hands to dig around creating beauty.
