Potagers des Mères  - Mothers’ Gardens 

In the three weeks leading up to the inauguration of “Mothers’ Gardens”, we will hold a series of workshops with the women of Amidon. During these encounters, we will collect memories, stories, wisdom and recipes, which will be embroidered on bedsheets that belonged to the legendary actress Jeanne Moreau, an acclaimed master storyteller. The sheets, which were kindly donated by the Jeanne Moreau Foundation, will mark the beginning of our cartography of human displacements. By interweaving threads and stories, we hope to capture and cultivate dreams for an inclusive, multicultural future. 

 

The AMMAR Seeds workshops will take place in the educational vegetable garden “La Gioventu” at the Jardin de Brantes. Under the careful cultivation of Lisa Sørensen, "La Gioventu" has achieved Ecocert and Biodynamic certification. It is in this context of growth and nurture for the organic that we will exchange wisdom and practices of care. Together with our collaborators and guests Jean-Michel Florin, Sophie Barbaux,  Maÿlis and Cyril Guiraud, we will create a safe space that celebrates diverse human experience. We will capture new memories through embroidery, a craft known both for its peaceful domesticity and as a political act of resistance. 

 

The AMMAR Seeds workshops will be filmed by documentarist Mahtab Mansour and exhibited to raise funds for the creation of Mothers’ Gardens in urban areas around the world.

Maÿlis et Cyril Guiraud are founders and keepers of ’l’arbre aux étoiles” an “Ecolieu”, ‘ecological place’ in Normandy, their home region in France.  This they share and administer based on a deep ecology approach, principally through the dynamic of participative work-camps that allow the creation of a local community of committed people who contribute to the maintenance of the place while creating links.   Convinced that eco-places are part of the solution to the major challenges ahead, they are at the origin of the "Guardians of Places" network, which brings together guardians of places (or future guardians) committed to an eco-spiritual approach and willing to activate synergies and mutual aid between places.  Today they are leading actors in the movement of the societal and environmental renewal in France, while being strongly anchored in their territory.

Sophie Barbaux 

Immersed in contemporary visual and performing arts, fields in which she has worked from 1984 to 2004,  her gardens from 2007 to today, whether public (Senate, Centre Universitaire University Centre Malesherbes/Sorbonne Paris IV, Institut Innovant de Formation par la Recherche/Paris, IGN/Météo France,...) or private and her publishing projects, are naturally at the crossroads of several disciplines, echoes of our collective memories. After meeting the RJSM (Réseau des Jardins Solidaires Méditerranéens), of which she has been president since 2017, she turned to the design, development and animation of solidarity gardens, shared, educational, therapeutic, transgenerational, collective and/or individual plots, which constitute the major part of her professional commitment today: Joyeux Jardin of the MECS Le Mas Joyeux / Marseille, Jardin du Soleil du Bartas/Vitrolles, Jardin Peyret/Septèmes-les-Vallons, to name just a few.  With new objectives underlying these gardens: organic production and soil regeneration, access for all to quality and diversified food, and the exchange of culinary practices, and the (re)discovery of the generous wild flora.
