Trip to India, 30 January – 9 February 2016

Planting was carried out this week in the Joan of Arc Garden, as can be seen in the new photographs on our website. The foundations of the promenade have been laid and the pétanque pitch outlined. The lotus flowers are open around the statue of Joan of Arc, which has had its lost foot restored. Discussions have begun with the new priest of Our-Lady-of-Angels, Father Cyril Sandou, who is now responsible for the gardens, and the diocesan treasurer who visited the site described our creation as a "Garden of peace and serenity". Maintenance of the new garden will be overseen by Samuel Victor, until work is completed. The Amis du Patrimoine Pondichérien (APP) will then take over for the following six months, under the direction of gardeners from the Auroville Botanic Garden, who have supplied the plants.
