In unrelated news, the theme of this year’s “Rendez-Vous aux Jardins” on June 5 and 6 is “The transmission of knowledge.” At the initiative of the French Ministry of Culture and the European Network of Cultural Heritage, the event has taken place at the beginning of June every year since 2003.
Monaco has been participating since 2008 and this edition offers free workshops for adults and children at three of the country’s gardens: Saint Martin (“No secrets in annual beds”); the Princess Grace Rose Garden (“Become a jury for the rose competition”); and the Japanese Garden (“I realize my zen garden”).
Workshops run 2 days back-to-back, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. but participants must email a reservation request to email@example.com before June 4. Wearing a mask is compulsory and groups are limited to 5. The Urban Planning Department will provide hydroalcoholic gel to the public.
