Design: Gardens of Peace, Péronne, France

Launching October 2018, this summer will commence the build of the Jardins de la Paix (Gardens of Peace), a series of perennial gardens on the theme of peace in the Hauts-de-France region that will pay tribute to the countless deaths on French soil between 1914 and 1918, and bear witness to the number and diversity of the countries involved in this conflict.

One of the gardens will be created at the Chateau de Perrone, Historial de la Grande Guerre in the Somme region of Northern France. The garden, to be built in the moat of the castle was designed by Ian Price and Peter Donegan, selected by the jury to represent North Ireland and Ireland respectively. Donegan and Price are 2 of just 14 international garden designers chosen to create one of the 9 gardens.

Below, a short video of where the garden will be created.
