“Gardener Mission”: the Week-End Nature
October 8 @ 10:00 am - October 9 @ 5:00 pm
Following the success of the first edition organized in 2021, the Department of Urban Development (DAU) is repeating the “Week-End Nature” experience on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October 2022, around the thrilling theme “Gardener Mission”, which will fascinate young and old!
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Gardens Section of the DAU will welcome participants to the Princess Grace Rose Garden in Fontvieille and to the Cultural Greenhouses of Saint-Laurent d’Eze. Upon arrival at one of the reception stands, each family of apprentice investigators will be given a mission envelope and an investigator card, in order to find the activity points scattered in the gardens and solve puzzles to unlock the secrets of gardeners.
On the program of this treasure hunt and these unusual workshops:
• Fontvieille site / Princess Grace rose garden:
– Understand life underground

• Cultivation greenhouses of Saint-Laurent d’Eze:

The highlight of the nature weekend: the concert by the Prince’s Carabinieri Orchestra, Saturday 8 at 6 p.m., in the Saint-Martin Gardens where participants are invited to bring their picnic to share a convivial moment in the gardens.
