Our story

Candide draws inspiration from Voltaire’s novel of the same name. His love song to gardening follows the journey of the lead character, through the trials and tribulations of life as he experiences extreme hardship and disillusionment. And yet, in the end, Candide is at peace with himself, life and the world through cultivating his garden. “We must take care of our garden” is his lasting profound reflection. Candide is a growing movement that encourages us all to reconnect with our gardens and share the joy of gardening. We believe that gardening is the root of happiness, and cultivates well-being for the mind and soul.
