Yohan Odin comes from the Grenoble region, where he spent the majority of his childhood until the age of 18. He followed a general school curriculum, obtaining his baccalauréat scientifique avec mention Bien (A level equivalent, science stream, with distinction) in 2014. Passionate from a very young age about the plant kingdom, nature and mountain landscapes, he decided to attend Agrocampus Ouest, a higher education institution for landscape engineers. He has carried out a number of internships throughout the course in order to get to grips with the various aspects of the landscaper profession, he chose the specialism “Landscape: Operationality and Project” in the final year of the course. Involved in various societies at his school, keen on sport and conscious of current issues, he is convinced that the actions undertaken by landscapers with respect for nature are the key to the future. Having visited the last five editions of the Chaumont-sur-Loire International Garden Festival and inspired by their ingenuity, techniques and innovative spirit, he and three friends decided to enter the 2019 competition together.
Anaëlle Huet comes from the Haute-Normandie region and passed her baccalauréat scientifique in 2013, taking German as an additional optional subject during her 3 years of college in Évreux, in the Eure département.

In 2015, she joined Agrocampus Ouest and specialised in the final year of her course in the “Regional, Site and Landscaping Project” with the aim of obtaining her diploma in Landscape Engineering in 2019. Being a candidate in the Chaumont-sur-Loire International Garden Festival is a unique opportunity for her to put the knowledge that she has acquired over the course of her years studying landscape design into practice.
Quentin Huillet was born in Grasse in the Alpes-Maritimes département. He remained there until the age of 18 and followed a general curriculum at the international college in Valbonne. After obtaining his baccalauréat scientifique avec mention Très Bien (with distinction), he moved to Angers to study landscaping at Agrocampus Ouest, a higher education institution specialising in Horticulture and Landscape Engineering. His 5-year course has enabled him to blossom and open himself up to the plant world, the nerve centre of landscape projects. He chose the specialism “Landscape: Operationality and Project” in order to put the finishing touches to his engineering skills, which are required for drawing up technical documents, ensuring a project’s viability. The Chaumont-sur-Loire International Garden Festival thus marks the culmination of this complete academic career.
