«Forêt et cueillettes»
Court of the museum
A proposal by atelier le balto co-produced by the École nationale supérieure de paysage de Versailles and the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature as part of the event "Un paysage où vivre. Les 20 ans des Carnets du paysage" and the museum's summer cultural program.
In the center of the museum's courtyard, a small growing wood composed of tree outlines will be surrounded by a border around which walkers will circulate and be able to pick wild edible plants. On a large outdoor table, books on wild plants, herbariums, copies of Carnets du paysage, a magazine co-published by Actes Sud and the École nationale supérieure de paysage, and the spring issue of the magazine Billebaude on foraging will be available. Throughout the summer, workshops and meetings will be offered on the knowledge related to "good herbs", gathering, agricultural practices that make room for the wild, etc. Between spring and fall, visitors to the museum will be able to appreciate the subtle transformations of this garden as the seasons change.

Atelier le balto was created in 2001 in Berlin by Marc Pouzol, DLPG landscape designer, today associated with Véronique Faucheur, urban planner by training. In partnership with their accomplice Marc Vatinel (Le Havre), they have created gardens for numerous art and cultural venues such as Kunst Werke - Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and recently for the Hors-Pistes festival at Beaubourg. For all three of them and their numerous collaborators, the training and the profession of gardener play an important role in their landscape creations, whether on the scale of the park, the garden or the city.
