Part art, part political statement, 800 farmers in France have
installed a giant garden on the most famous street in Paris, the
Champs-Élysées. There are plants from all over France, as well as
livestock: pigs, sheep, cows, and so forth. The piece will be up for
two days and is supposed to get Parisians to remember that France
supplies most of Europe with agricultural products and to support
farmers politically and economically. France is in the midst of an
agricultural crisis due, in large part, to rising production costs.
