The International Garden Festival,  presented at the Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens in the Gaspésie region of Québec, is preparing  its 16th edition and is issuing an international call for proposals to select designers who will create the new temporary gardens that will be presented from June 27 to September 27, 2015.

“Buzz” is the operative word guiding the 2015 Festival. The installations selected by the jury will have  a special energy and connection to the natural world. The temporary gardens will have a central  concept that will be clearly articulated and a degree of interactivity that encourages visitors to enter  with enthusiasm and leave with a wish to dialogue and discuss. They will be bold or earthy, complex  or very simple. The goal is to intrigue visitors with the unusual or to impress by new ways of  presenting what is common. Incorporating vegetables and/or aromatic, medicinal or edible plants, the  new gardens will be full of colour and intensity.

This call for proposals is open to all landscape architects, architects, designers and artists from Canada and abroad. For complete information on this call for proposals, those interested should consult the web site: www.projects.internationalgardenfestival.ca

The deadline for the submission of entries is MONDAY NOVEMBER 17, 2014 at 5 pm EST.
