THE ORCHARD
Of Port-Royal-des-Champs
Magny-les-Hameaux

The current evocation allows to restore the memory of the place as the spirit of the garden, and to testify of the ancient fruit arboriculture. The works consisted in finding the identity and the originality of the orchard created by Arnauld d' Andilly between 1646 and 1674, by implanting variety show(varieties) and fruit forms of time on former(ancient) plans, from the statements of time and the didactic treaty written by the gardener: the Way of cultivating fruit trees, published(edited) in 1652 under abbot Legendre's pen name.
Formerly garden of utility, this orchard is called to become at the same moment a garden of enjoyment(approval) and curiosity for the guests; an orchard school as place of learning, exchanges of knowledges and techniques; a garden of experiment on the behavior of the former(old) variety show(varieties).
