What is it you do?
“The park includes a remarkable garden of topiary sculptures, created by training and clipping bushes into particular shapes, as well as aromatic and medicinal plants, flower gardens, educational gardens, all designed to inform and raise awareness of biodiversity and nature.”
What prompted you to seek "Famenne-Ardenne UNESCO Global Geopark Partner" status?
“The idea of joining a recognised group that is part of a geographical entity with a combined focus onthe landscape, the natural heritage, tourism and the economy of the region.”
What is your approach to sustainable development and environment friendly practices?
“We are all in favour of anything that does not put our gardens at risk. Some of our initiatives include using pheromone traps rather than insecticides, mechanical weeding rather than chemical weedkillers, and using organic rather than chemical fertiliser. We also provide our visitors with educational information on Wallonia’s natural heritage.”
