At the gates of Gascony , near Gimont , and more precisely in Aubiet, is a place of discovery of permaculture . The original concept of La Nourrice garden is to combine the vegetable garden, the habitat and the pleasure. Between forest, meadows and crops, it is balance and harmony that are sought.

The Garden of the Abbey of Flaran

The Flaran abbey in Valence-sur-Baïse has a simple medieval-type garden , where it is pleasant to walk, on an esplanade behind the abbey. It consists of squares of ornamental and aromatic plants, separated by alleys. These plants, sometimes with medicinal properties , were used in the infirmaries of the Abbeys and by the monks to cure various ailments. You will also find some fruit trees there.
