OPENING GARDENS THROUGHOUT FRANCE to help fund charitable causes.
Open Gardens/Jardins Ouverts is a registered association (no.W232001865), which encourages owners to open their gardens to the public.
Admission is by an annual Membership Card (10€) which entitles the holder to visit any of the gardens throughout the year on their stated open days.
Visitors also have the option of purchasing the Anniversary Card which, in addition to allowing access to the regular gardens, includes free entry to some of France’s most admired gardens which have been credited with the label of “Jardin Remarquable” or similar.
The proceeds are donated to charitable organisations in France.
