  • On March 1, 2020

On March 1st, let's plant together the decor of the Groues nursery.

On Sunday, March 1st, from 9am to 5pm, the teams of Paris La Défense, Yes We Camp and TN Plus will meet you for a big festive workcamp. Come and take part in an original planting project, a place in the making!

The roots of the event: 110 trees to be planted on Vive les Groues. It is in the heart of the new horticultural nursery in the new district that 110 trees will be planted. The latter was created on the 9000 m2 wasteland of Vive les Groues with an innovative objective: the local production of the trees that will adorn the public spaces of the future district of Les Groues.

How to become an actor of a place in the making? By being part of a day of fabulous volunteer gardeners and by registering on benevoles@vivelesgroues.org. By simply coming to share a festive and convivial moment exclusively reserved...for everyone.

Program:

Morning
About 50 plants to be planted!

  • Lunch at a token price*
    A meal to be shared all together followed by a meeting with Marie-Célie Guillaume, Managing Director of Paris La Défense and Patrick Jarry, Mayor of Nanterre, to celebrate the launch of the Groues nursery and this new step for the future public spaces of the district.

Festive, lively, hard-working afternoon! The work continues with the 50 trees and shrubs still to be planted. Musical animations, soil discovery workshops as well as storytelling readings will be offered. A space to ask all your questions about the future development of the district will be provided. Gifts will be distributed!

The Groues tomorrow

The 65 hectares of redeveloped land will offer nearly 4,500 new homes, numerous offices, quality public and private facilities, and public spaces oriented towards nature. Squares, gardens and parks, promenades, the future public spaces will be pleasant, welcoming and will give pride of place to nature. And what could be better than a nursery in the district, on the wasteland of Vive les Groues, to host the species that will make up these future public spaces? To celebrate the launch of the Groues nursery, we invite you to take part in this day of planting and entertainment! Whether you want to help us and participate in the workcamp, or just enjoy the place and the animations, you are welcome!
