On Friday 29 May, around thirty Societe Generale employees went to Meudon to the Village Educatif Saint-Philippe d’Apprentis d’Auteuil*, a major partner of the Foundation. Throughout the day, they helped the schoolchildren and their teachers with their horticultural activities.
During this visit, employees planted vegetables and flowers, which will later be harvested by the young people from the association as part of their gardening activities.
