Shared gardens as a historical ferment of the social bond
Did you know that? The first shared gardens were created in France in the second half of the 19th century to cope with food difficulties. The various local initiatives inspired Father Jules Lemire, a deputy from the North, to make a piece of land available to workers. This action thus contributed to the creation of the Ligue Française du Coin de Terre et du Foyer in 1896, which was later extended throughout France.The "feeder" garden system spread to other populations with the crisis of the thirties and the occupation. The aim was for city dwellers to invest public space to cultivate what was lacking in shops. After the war, once the food shortage was over, the gardens disappeared.
Focus on the actions organized by the Polylogis Group
