The arboretum at the time of its 9th Spring

Trois jours sur le thème des “cinq sens au jardin”. OT Pays de Lunel

As part of the 9th Spring of the Arboretum, which is being held from this Friday, May 31 to Sunday, June 2, the tourist office is offering two guided tours of the "secret garden of the city", this Saturday, June 1 at 11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. "The arboretum is unfortunately closed indefinitely, so this is an opportunity to open it exceptionally and introduce this place to people who don't know it with these tours", explains the event organizer Julien Saint-Upéry. In order to lift the veil on this hidden place, little known to the public, these visits allow us to "talk about all the trees spread over six different areas and go back in time", underlines the project leader.

Travel through the ages

The arboretum is an invitation to observe the evolution of the Mediterranean plant world, from the Paleolithic to the present day. It is also an opportunity for the tourist office to describe to the public the journey that plants take and to bring the fruits of the past out of oblivion. These two visits will be accompanied by Julien Saint-Upéry for a duration of about an hour each.

To participate, there is no need to register in advance, just come to the garden (chemin du Gazon) and follow the guide through the 17,000 plants.

But the 9th Spring of the arboretum is not limited to these guided tours. This Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., it will be possible to visit the arboretum freely and enjoy the exhibition of a model of the Symbo that represents the gold basin and the riches that must be preserved there. Sunday, June 2, the visit of the 2-hectare park and the exhibition is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This day will also be animated by a multitude of information forums, around subjects such as the origin of odors in nature, the preservation of biodiversity, the reduction of waste or the fight against waste. In addition, two workshops offered by Nature comestible and BeeArgues, at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. And the event is free.
