Meyrin’s award-winning Alpine Botanical Garden + Botanica 2019: 70 events at 20 Swiss Gardens

  Every year since 1998, the Swiss Heritage Society recognises one garden in Switzerland for its outstanding achievements in the garden arts, placing as much value on efforts to conserve and maintain valuable historic green spaces as it does on the creation of new, contemporary ones. On Saturday, 18 May, the Society awarded its Schultess Prize, named after the award’s benefactors Georg and Marianne von Schulthess-Schweizer and worth CHF 25’000.00, to the Jardin Botanique Alpin Meyrin, located in the Geneva suburb of Meyrin.
