By bike, on foot or on an electric scooter, discover the largest vegetable garden in Switzerland: the Grand Marais. Whether you are planting vegetables, solving a quiz on herbs or taking a guided tour through the heart of a farm, six exciting stops along the route will immerse you in the world of vegetable growers.
A host of food stalls and bars invite you to take a culinary break, while a variety of concerts enliven these meeting places. The Vully winegrowers will also be presenting their wines at one of the stations along the route.
As for activities, the Alpagas from the small family-run company Alpajama will be on hand for rides. A mini-tractor race will also be organised, much to the delight of children. Various music groups will be on hand to provide a musical atmosphere throughout the day.
Families will also be able to take part in a special detective trail. They will have to help the vegetable growers find the seedlings that have been stolen! The detective kit can be booked online.
