Appel d’Air’s third adoption party will be an opportunity to welcome the beautiful days with a day of workshops and reflections on the place of the tree in the city. The little Paulownia plants, having survived the winter thanks to the care of our dear members, are already starting to have leaves! It’s time to come and visit them and welcome the new sponsors during a festive, friendly and musical day.

Tree Day
In addition to the adoption party, a series of workshops and child-friendly microlectures will be held. On the program, gardening activities with our nurseryman, Sylvain Gaufillier, snack-conference with the artist Thierry Boutonnier, sound experiments around the breath with the artist Aurélia Nardini and many other activities, then this beautiful Saturday ends with a big barbecue! Come and visit us at Vive les Groues and remember to register for the workshops at the following link: Workshop Registration.

Participate in Appel d’air : Become a witness
Appel d’air is a participative and environmental work of the artist Thierry Boutonnier which accompanies the construction site of the Grand Paris Express until 2030. Residents of cities served by the Grand Paris Express are invited to adopt the trees intended for the forecourts of the 68 stations of the future metro. They participate, within the urban nursery Appel d’air, in the creation of a perennial work and the birth of a forest. We are still looking for sponsors!
