Appropriation sociale de la transition écologique : pratiques et représentations des jardins privés

Abstract : Empirical observation has shown that the private gardens in the area lost their landscape identity in favour of artificial garden. In order to understand and prove this observation, a study consisting of three works was carried out. First of all, a pre-diagnosis of the territory was carried out with experts to understand the issues at stake, then semi-directive interviews with the population to understand the perception and representation of the private garden but also of the living environment, and finally a cartography to find out what types of gardens are found on the territory. There is a real tangle of social relations revolving around the garden which is not isolated in space and time. The inhabitants, although little aware of the contribution of their private garden to a wider ecosystem, are sensitive to current environmental issues. The Community of communes and the Communes are all designated to help the inhabitants to reinvite the bocage in their garden. But to do this, they will have to adapt their way of communicating, taking into account that the territory includes several groups of people and gardeners with specific vocabulary and social codes. This study is the introduction to a wider project aimed at revaluing nature in private spaces and establishing a living link between the local authorities and the inhabitants.
