Le jardin, 200 ans de passion

Le jardin, 200 ans de passion

Les CJBG rendent hommage à leur fondateur Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle (1778-1841) au travers de deux expositions liées, La passion du savoir et Le Jardin, 200 ans de passion.

THE GARDEN, 200 YEARS OF PASSION
This second exhibition consists of a diverse display imparting the rich history of the botanical garden—the living collections of plants—from its inception at Park Bastions in 1817 to the organically-managed garden of today at its current site.
Envisioned as a chronological stroll, it consists of 16 beds illustrating the special expertise of the gardeners as well as a range of horticultural techniques developed over two centuries of botany in Geneva.

Some highlights from the garden’s storied history include: the collection of fruit trees and grape vines of Candolle’s original “botany school”, the rock gardens designed by Jules Allemand in 1904, the building of the Winter Garden conservatory and the emblematic temperate greenhouse, or the establishment of the rose collection.

The heritage by A.-P de Candolle proved rich. The arrival of the Botanical Garden in Bastions in 1817 helped erase the troubling memories of the Genevan Revolution of 1794. After moving to its current location in 1904, the garden bloomed even brighter. The constant expansion and the growth in activities at the CJBG attest to the fertility of this uninterrupted line of plants and planting begun by Candolle and bringing us to this anniversary. Two hundred years of passion in the service of plants and the public, retraced in an open-air exhibition, a true challenge met by our passionate gardeners!

This exhibition is presented just below the Villa Le Chêne
