We had a first meeting with the UPEC geography students who are interested in doing research around the Jardin pontanique. They are studying the campus and more specifically the jardin from socio-geographic point of view. Thanks for thinking of us!

We encourage ENPC students to use the backyard composter. Your food scraps will be transformed into compost with the help of humidity and aeration. The waste is converted into a perfect fertilizer for the plants of the garden! – from Manuel
This team and others have managed to draw the garden back to its former beauty and appeal. After a lot of scratches, nettle stings and general dirty fatigue, this crew incorporated last year’s Meunier dorm compost (thanks!) into the soil and got in some onions, radishes, lettuce and more. Nothing like teamwork to get the job done.

The little things
I chose these little flowers because in this season, they are the most coloured things we can observe. It is all the more interesting since they are very little in comparison with the other plants of the garden and thus, they are not the first thing we see in the garden.

After a long winter of hardy cooking waste, the Develop’ponts composters are now full. Lorraine has added more straw to dry it out and hopefully finish off the process for us to use the compost by early summer. They will be setting up a new one in the next weeks.
Our Wednesday class decided to get a bit of early planting going before the March rain showers. It’s probably still too cold for the seeds to sprout, but we were excited to be rid of winter and imagine that spring is here. The calendar says so, anyway…
