Since 1965, the American Church has sponsored Bloom Where You’re Planted – Tips for Living in France. This full day seminar, designed to assist English-speaking newcomers to France, features speakers and/or workshops on various topics from food and wine tasting to health care and general safety, need-to-know subjects, and just plain fun facts about France. Bloom helps with understanding cultural differences, creating a new life in Paris, and getting connected with friends and organizations throughout Paris and the surrounding areas.
The Bloom book, Bloom Where You’re Planted, Tips for Living in France, has been updated and reprinted regularly since 1965, and has become the “must have” book for all English-speaking expats in France. Even if you’re an old hand at living in France, you’re bound to learn new things from the Bloom Book.
