At a time when the Hauts-de-France region is going to become the European region of gastronomy in 2023, the mission of promoting the world of market gardening and market garden production in the Marais Audomarois, the last market garden in France, which the Maison du Marais is carrying out, takes on an even stronger meaning. It is in this context that it wishes to complete and develop its educational offer. By increasing awareness of its terroir, it hopes to give the keys to knowledge and mastery of this heritage to the next generations of professionals in the gastronomy and hotel industry so that they can in turn develop it.
It is with this in mind that we wish to bring together the world of hotel training and the actors of the marshlands of the Audomarois. By wishing to make learners benefit from the skills and know-how acquired over time by the Saint-Omer region in terms of market gardening, gastronomy and hotel industry, the Maison du Marais aims to bring the Marais Audomarois into the various courses in order to offer a new added value to the educational contents that compose them.
In the end, this exchange could increase the notoriety of the Marais Audomarois and create a long-term link between socio-professional structures, learning structures and mediating structures of the territory.
At the end of this program, the different parties could benefit from a network between professionals and learners. For the territory, it is an additional recognition that could arouse new interest and also help to overcome the recruitment difficulties that hoteliers are facing today. It is also the recognition of a region as a land of values, know-how and knowledge.
