L'Association des Petits Jardinieres du Limousin is a friendly and informal gardening association based in Limousin. The Limousin region, located inland in the middle of France is made up of three departments, the Haute-Vienne, Creuse and Correze. Lying to the west of the Massif Centrale, the Limousin is one of the most unspoilt rural regions in France. Its wooded hills, clear lakes and rivers and medieval villages create a tranquil, unspoilt landscape with beautiful scenery.
From tiny window box gardens, to large tracts of land, the association brings together gardeners of all levels from the amateur to the professional, all sharing a love of the outdoors and a desire to learn a little more about growing plants – flowers, fruit, vegetables and trees, in this region.
We meet on the third Thursday of each month in the village hall at St. Amand le Petit (between Eymoutiers and Peyrat le Chateau). Meetings start at 2.30pm and everyone is made very welcome.
Although our talks are predominantly in English, French translations are given in most instances and we welcome all nationalities to our meetings.
The purpose of the association is to provide and promote opportunities for local people to develop their interest and knowledge in horticulture and gardening and related topics.
