Marrakesh’s most famous garden turns 100

The Jardin Majorelle is one of the most visited sites in Marrakesh, Morocco. It is a lush, serene oasis in the middle of a busy city. The Jardin Majorelle celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. It’s adapted its practices to limit water use and adapt to a changing climate. The World’s host Carol Hills talks with Madison Cox, a garden designer who has been involved in preserving the garden since 1970, about what changes the garden has made and it’s importance.
