From 15 to 16 April 2022
5 rue JF KENNEDY Toulouse
The Albert 1er hotel welcomes in these shows, the time of a weekend of actors and local producers specialists of the plant, the occasion of meetings and exchanges with passionate professionals.
The hotel is strongly committed to sustainable development and was one of the first hotels in the city to obtain the European ECOLABEL label. For this new event, it is the vegetal which is put on the front of the stage, well aware of the environmental stakes that represent the greening of the cities.
The Albert Plant Sales are a continuation of the “flowers on my wall” approach of the city of Toulouse and of the will to connect the inhabitants of the district with local producers and actors.
In recent years, the sale of plants in the city center has become very popular with city dwellers, with plants and productions from far away.
On the other hand, this operation carried out with local actors, is the opportunity to put forward a know-how, local producers and to favour exchanges.
Thus the Albert Plant Sales are co-organized with the interior landscaper Capsule-Végétale from Toulouse, Cécile Genty.
His specialty is to advise individuals as well as professionals in the greening of their interiors, by selecting plants adapted to the constraints of a house or offices.
Green your home with local producers!
