The kitchen garden-orchard of the La Roche-Guyon castle is a place where values, know-how and competences are transmitted, bringing together heritage and ecology. Its 3,8 hectares make it the largest kitchen garden of Ile-de-France, after the Royal Kitchen Garden in Versailles.
In 2004, the garden was restructured following its original 18th century design, and the 100% natural cultivation methods that have been applied since 2007 have won it the ”AB” (Agriculture Biologique) certification, awarded by ECOCERT label, for the entirety of its produce. In 2011, it was labeled ”Jardin Remarquable”, Remarkable Garden. Its current project is the creation of an ecosystem in connection with the surrounding territory and its inhabitants.
