-New in 2019: the garden of "baby vegetables", a cognitive and sensorial exploration for little ones and their families. Have fun together as you explore all four elements and discover plants, insects and animals that thrive in our gardens. Awareness raising through game and touching, in full respect of the environment and biodiversity.

-The semi-natural garden draws you to walk amidst the plants that change with time and seasons. Here you have lots of plant species with descriptions of what they can be used for (textiles and dyeing, aromatic and perfume plants, herbs and medicinal plants) and their geographic origins.
-Various educational gardens - see toxic plants, arid gardens, rococco gardens, vegetable garden, the pond and the plant-purification basin.
