About ‘Les Jardins d’ici’


“I am really pleased to see that the fruit is being used”. Tree owner, London, September 2011. Picture: surplus pears donated by the tree owner in 2013.

From pears to kiwis, many types of fruit grow in London, where this blog started.

Often wasted these days, because modernity takes us away from the edible garden, they are a source of simple and healthy daily life pleasures accessible to many.

The blog presents recipes, tips and stories aimed at promoting those pleasures.

It is also an opportunity to raise awareness of the sustainable development benefits of such activities.
