Les jardins botaniques des jardins de Payan

Tarascon - Mas de Payan - Nature and the environment - Du 11 mars au 9 décembre

"Un jardin aux pieds des Alpilles,
Un potager dans lequel les légumes côtoient roses et pivoines,
Un arboretum avec sa collection de chênes,
Le Jardin du Philosophe dans lequel l'on peut admirer des oeuvres d'artistes contemporains,
La serre qui abrite les plantes les plus frileuses, 1000 espèces que l'on peut découvrir dans tous ces espaces."

Le jardin de Payan, riche aujourd'hui d'environ 800 taxons est un jardin qui conjugue l'art des jardins au sens le plus large et la botanique. Le jardin d'une autodidacte passionnée de dendrologie attachée à cette terre de Provence.
