Champs Elysees goes green

The Champs Elysees, typically a major roadway inside the city of Paris was transformed into a full-blown garden on May 23 by a young French farmers' union, which organized a two-day Nature Capitale event. The union, representing farmers under the age of 35, aimed to showcase farm production from sheep breeding to crop growing and win public support for their embattled sector.
