Meet the educational farms of Marseille
Among the various tools for environmental awareness and education developed by the city of Marseille, the pedagogical farms are the most concrete way for city dwellers to reconnect with the rural world. They allow the young public to discover, through animals and culture, the land’s professions and agricultural production.
