Patron Saint of gardeners
Adelard was born in Belgium,751. He became a monk at Corbie where he was responsible for the garden work, because the court-life disgusted him. He was made abbot and he was Charlemagne's counselor. Due to pressure from his cousin Charlemagne, he was forced to give up his life in the monastery and work for him. Later on, he was accused of supporting a rival power and was banished on the island of Heri. He passed away on the 2nd of January 827 after an illness.
