Logo La Source
A new place to discover and share about the Alps, a source of knowledge, creation and transmission, La Source offers educational and creative activities: workshops, exhibitions, shows, play areas, readings, educational garden.
"At the corner of a pond, in the shade of an old farmhouse or in the middle of a meadow, as of this summer a new place in Grand-Bornand will invite young and old to take the time to be together. Source of knowledge and creation, source of life and transmission, it is quite natural that this place is called "La Source". As the seasons go by, the themes will change but the message remains the same: listen to the mountains and let them guide us towards unexplored paths. "
