About the Discovery of Plant Pharmacy

You will experience connecting the five senses with plants as practiced by our most distant ancestors, the opportunity to reconnect with your genetic knowledge.  The experience continues by discovering the basics of companionship between plants and the concept of plant pharmacy.  You will be invited to French specialty pastries around an infusion of plants.  For more information, here is the AirBnB link to the experience with Frédéric and Véronique.  You can also follow the latest news on their Facebook page (les jardins de Charlemagne).  They can be contacted directly through their Facebook page.

Garden visit –  herbalism – food tasting

Frédéric and Véronique are the owners of ‘les jardins de Charlemagne’ and they have been presenting gardens in both France and Canada for 18 years.  They have been looking around in the research and the oral traditions about the culture and the use of ancient plants, the types of plants you would find outside the beaten track.  They offer you a chance to experience them in the framework of Charlemagne’s gardens in Boreal earth.  They are located in Notre-Dame-du-Nord, in the province of Québec, only 15 minutes from Temiskaming Shores.
