The Camifolia Garden in Chemillé-en-Anjou is a green oasis located in the heart of the Hyrôme Valley. It has over 600 species of medicinal, aromatic and dyeing plants, each with amazing properties. The garden was created in 1976 by a group of local producers. Back then, it was located in the Town Hall garden and was a public garden. Over the years, it underwent a series of changes. In 1996, the non-profit organisation “Les Amis du jardin” (Friends of the Garden), along with the Tourist Office and the various municipalities surrounding Chemillé, decided to give a touristic, cultural and educational purpose to the garden. The Camifolia garden was inaugurated in 2008. In 2010, it received the “Botanical garden of France and French speaking countries” label.
