As the adage goes, you hardly change a winning formula. For the second year in a row, the Noyeraie des Borderies opens its doors to the public to launch its summer season this Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. And visitors can rest assured, a tivoli is planned if the weather is not favorable for this friendly party which will celebrate the first anniversary of the site’s local boutique.

A host of activities are on the menu for this day, starting with creative workshops around color and trees, lasting half an hour per session (€3), aimed at both adults and children (at from 5 years).

A novelty supervised by the renowned painter Valérie Grondin, who exhibits in France and across the Atlantic, “who we will also meet this summer for more in-depth workshops this time”, announces Cécile Vidal, the director of La Noyeraie.

Free tours of the property, with tasting of its products, are also on the program of the celebrations, the opportunity to discover the approximately 2,500 walnut trees that it shelters and whose harvest takes place in October.

Six local producers and artisans will also be present for a tasting and sale of their specialties, including honey and saffron from LaurenceB, artisanal macarons from Toquine, Manslois from Rivières, artisanal pasta from La Font-Garnier, jams from Tadjam, trout, sturgeon and caviar from the Gensac fish farm, and jewelry from the Atelier de Louise.

Finally, treasure hunts are planned to keep the youngest entertained, and gourmet platters, snacks and small snacks, 100% local of course, will be essential so as not to remain empty-stomached during this festival which foreshadows many other events to come this summer.

In addition to the return of Valérie Grondin, “we are planning osteopathy workshops on posture and breathing and we will also try a brunch under the walnut trees in June,” indicates Cécile Vidal.
