August in Brittany
A week-end of editing at "the end of the Earth"
This summer, the Conservatoire Botanique National de Brest (CBN), Finistère opened its doors to Wikipedians. At the initiative of Gaëlle Fily , coordinator of Brest local group, local volunteers were granted access, since the beginning of July, to the CBN greenhouses. For once, it's not about archives files and dusty books, but about natural heritage !
Early August, the local group was joined by other editors from Brittany: the first edit-a-thon was then held at the Conservatoire, with more than ten people attending. The objective was to create and improve a dozen Wikipedia articles and to photograph more than thirty protected species in the four tropical greenhouses of CBN.

Wiki takes Josselin !
On the initiative of Tsaag Valren, a wiki-meetup in Josselin (Morbihan) was held on August 29th and 30th. The weekend was an opportunity to enrich photographs from Josselin, a city with a rich architectural heritage. Saturday morning was dedicated to a session of editing at the local library. Participants then left to search the city for beautiful pictures.
