Inauguration of the Le Blé en herbe school by Matali Crasset
The re-birth of a village around an innovative school
The school Le Blé en Herbe,located in the little village of Trébédan, of 400 inhabitants, has 64 nursery and primary school pupils, in three classes. For the past eight years the school teachers have run educational projects that closely involve the pupils' parents, town councillors and elderly members of the town. Their initiatives have breathed new life into this rural area and led to the creation of a group of patrons united around a project for the school. As part of the restructuring of the buildings, which had been necessary for a number of years, the patrons wished to commission an artist.
