This year’s IWGS Symposium will be made up of three segments. First, a pre-Symposium will be held in Paris on August 21 and 22 to see the huge set of Monet waterlilies at the Musée de l’Orangerie, then off to see the gardens that inspired those works. Next, a tour of Monet’s Gardens awaits you in Giverny. Then, hop on a high-speed train to Le Temple Sur Lot for the main Symposium. From August 23–26, there will be educational sessions featuring international experts on a wide array of topics. This will be followed by the grand finale in Bordeaux on August 26, where we will wrap up with some food and wine as fine as the gardens themselves!
Finally, if you want to see a little bit more, you are invited to the South of France where there will be an informal post-Symposium tour from August 27–29.
