Peace Garden Le Quesnoy - call for proposals

09 February 2018

Position of the proposed Le Quesnoy peace garden

The Peace Gardens project consists of creating around fifteen perennial gardens in 2018 on the theme of peace in the Hauts-de-France region. This new memory trail will pay tribute to the countless deaths on French soil between 1914 and 1918, and bear witness to the number and diversity of the countries involved in this conflict. The project is initiated by the Association Art & Gardens – Hauts-de-France and by the First World War Centenary Partnership Program.
The suggested site for the creation of a garden by New Zealand landscapers is located at the foot of the ramparts of the town of Le Quesnoy, right next to a New Zealand memorial.
