A: Fern Day in Couesnongle

June 22


(Machine translation from the original French)

Hello everyone

On the occasion of the second edition of the “International Fern Day”, in partnership with “Support Migrants Redon”, we are organizing several events in the village of Couesnongle in Saint-Jacut-les-Pins 56220.

In the past, not knowing the mode of reproduction of ferns, this plant whose flower no one sees, we have often sought to justify this mysterious multiplication by supernatural phenomena. There are therefore, in popular traditions, myths and legends relating to it.

It is not surprising that at the summer solstice and more precisely during St John’s Day, a magical period when many extraordinary phenomena occur, it would be possible to see, at midnight precisely and for a few moments, the magnificent flower of fern! Anyone who luckily had the opportunity to see this flower would then benefit from extraordinary powers such as divination, invisibility…

In order to verify the foundations of this legend and the veracity of the powers obtained, we are organizing a night hike on Saturday June 22 entitled “In search of the mythical fern flower”. Tales, poetic texts, music, talks about the sites crossed, marshes, rivers, moors, quarries, chapel… will punctuate this unusual walk.

Meet at the village of Couesnongle at 9 p.m. (Plan) (possibly bring a small back protector to sit on the ground and a small lamp for the return)

The event will begin at 3:30 p.m. with the sale of plants as part of the “Plants from my garden to help migrants” action (free price)

– 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. discovery of local and exotic ferns in nature and in the garden. We will also have a look at all the local biodiversity and we will observe the small storks in the 8 nests built in the large poplar trees. (short 2-hour walk).

– 6 p.m. outdoor concerts.

– 7:30 p.m.: picnic from the basket and complemented by some salty and sweet specialties from Georgia.

– 9 p.m. to…midnight: “In search of the mythical fern flower” hike

The partnership with Soutien Migrants Redon aims to collect funding in order to contribute to the actions of this association. Proceeds from plant sales and other income will be entirely donated to SMR.

If you want the chance to predict the future or become invisible, learn more about ferns and have a friendly time, then go to Couesnongle for “International Fern Day”.
