Head to the Autumn Fair, until November 4, 2012, at Porte de Versailles.
Meet the latest trends in decoration, gastronomy, craftsmanship and well-being, with 400 exhibitors, the Autumn Fair offers more than 1,000 free activities and workshops for the family.
To discover, the vegetable garden to eat
"Le Potager à Croquer" will give pride of place to the urban vegetable garden. Sponsored by the famous landscaper Pierre-Alexandre Risser and designed in a city atmosphere by Véronique Vallauri, this event will reveal all the assets of the garden. Create your own vegetable garden with the Jardiniers de France, participate in creative workshops with Véronique Vallauri, customize your gardener's outfit with Mlle Kou or prepare good meals with the advice and cooking lessons of Top de Forme and Chef Martial, will now be child's play.
But the journey doesn’t end there, as the vegetables are full of artistic resources! Laurent Hartmann, specialist in vegetable sculpture, creates swans, elves or bouquets of flowers. For his part, Jean-Yves Bardoul plays plant music with the help of a carrot or a twig and will also be in concert at the Foire d'Automne. Karen Karmody, famous for her outfits created for Miss England, will take up the challenge of creating ten vegetable dresses. As for Isabelle Rozenbaum, she will offer photography workshops where everyone, equipped with their camera, will learn how to make sublime still lifes or photographs of dishes.
And to cultivate her happiness, life coach Sophie Machot will give her recipes to erase the everyday grayness.
Let's stay natural, since the Ateliers de la Souris Verte will offer to make their own cosmetics, well-being or home products, from natural and / or organic raw materials.
And to become unbeatable on the house and decoration, the pavilion “Inventing the house of tomorrow” produced by Leroy Merlin. This educational space will make it possible to identify the solutions existing to date for building or improving one's habitat, according to four themes: a house that is easier to live with; a thrifty house; a healthy home; an environmentally friendly house.
While in the Psychodéco® workshops, parents will benefit from the advice of Franck Dupuy, designer, decorator and television columnist, to improve their well-being thanks to the colors and the choice of their furniture, the children will build and decorate their cabin on the time of an animation proposed by MaCabane.
