Event description
An introduction to potager gardens

About this Event

A vegetable garden in France is named a potager which comes from potage, which is vegetable soup. The vegetable patch has often been a part of the garden separated from the rest and treated like a small farm field— ploughed (or rototilled), planted for the season in rows, and then left fallow. The potager is, first of all, a permanent garden— decorative, cultivated by hand methods, integrating shrubs, trees, paths, and herbs, vegetables, and flowers. These types gardens, though they are often considered a new development, have in fact been the typical type of garden in France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, North Africa, Persia, and many other places for a very long time—the Middle Ages in Europe, and as much as four thousand years in Persia and North Africa.

In this workshop, we will explore the mysteries of the potager garden. Plants were grown for many purposes—flowers, vegetables, herbs, privacy, etc. We’ll discuss the intensive soil preparation for close planting and continuous cropping, and the growth and care of fruits and vegetables, decorative design—some call it edible landscaping and production for much or all of the year.
