This Thursday, the museum’s vanniers were in the garden of the Argol Primary school. A team of enthusiastic young Vanniers became aware of Plessis’s proposed project to plait. A quick approach to geometry: the circle, the radius… which continues immediately by the practice. A stake in the centre of the work on which a 2 m long cord is pivoted, a bucket of sand and here are the scouts that draw the outer contour of a first circle. The cord is now shortened to 1.20 m to draw the inner circle.

The plane is laid, now comes the laying of stakes spaced 50 cm with the help of a freelance: a case rounded. The Hammers are at work, the studs sink into the ground, well to the vertical.

Young gardeners in action: wicker strands that are twice their size!

Our young vanniers are full of spirit. Here they are grabbing wicker strands to present them all around the perimeters, outside and inside connected by a hallway. The gesture of passage of the Strand in front of a picket, behind the next is quickly assimilated. The rule of strand replacement is a bit bumpy sometimes.

In record time, here the fence rises, the Plessis takes shape, the observations fuse. The satisfaction of a successful work appears. We are all anxious to know the following steps: Seedlings in the potting soil that will be brought and then the growth of flowers, vegetables.

Bravo to the young team of vanniers in the garden of the School of Argol
