Twenty countries participated in the Crowdfinding request initiated by France - General Directorate for Heritages, Ministry of Culture and Communication – concerning a “Project for a European event about gardens”. This first HEREIN crowdfinding experience (set up during the last meeting of the HEREIN Coordinators in Mons, Belgium) is a success and an encouragement to develop this new tool for exchanging and collecting information. The HEREIN System and the HEREIN Network are being strengthened thanks to this active participation. More initiatives are expected. Data collected as part of the crowdfinding will be published in the data base.
