Sunday in the garden

The gardens of the metropolis open their doors especially for the occasion of May 15.

This is particularly the case of the Florane garden (Toulon), the Sôllei’O (Solliès-Toucas), the shared garden (Pierrefeu).

The public will also be able to visit an urban vegetable and medicinal garden (Toulon), take part in participatory projects (plan du pont school in Hyères or the Golden Seeds garden in Toulon).

Also worth noting is a bike ride on the side of La Garde, chemin de la Bouilla.
