Front Yard Gardens in France

This blog has not had many recent entries because I have been in France for 5 weeks. In France, finding edibles growing in a front-yard is difficult because often a front yard does not exist, or it is behind an opaque wall or fence. So, I am going to expand the criteria for the blog slightly to include allotment gardens, edibles growing in public places, and edibles growing in the front of a house that has no front yard.

In Paris there are over 40 "jardins partages" (apologies for no accent--this software is not very friendly for the French language); in Canada we call them allotment or community gardens. I enjoyed visiting 4 of them and will provide some photos in future blogs. You can find a map of the gardens' locations here:
