The days are getting longer, the ground is thawing and the birds are stirring. While spring may not yet feel like it is in the air, Un plant de tomate à la fois is already hard at work preparing for the upcoming gardening season- and it’s going to be the best one yet! So start digging up those gardening gloves and spf 30 because we’ll be out in the garden before you know it!
Since 2012, Un plant de tomate à la fois has been bringing residents of Verdun together around the growing, preparing and sharing of food. In 2015, you can expect more collective gardening, cooking and youth workshops, more community-building activities and more opportunities to plug into the community gardening network in Montreal. Interested in starting your own garden at home? We can help! We’ll be continuing with our ‘Jardin chez soi’ home garden consultations. So whether you’re an experienced gardener or you’ve never touched a trowel-we would love for you to join us in the garden or in the kitchen!
If you are interested in participating in one of our 4 collective gardens;
- Dawson Rooftop
- Riverview Roots
- Jardin de l’espérance
- Douglas Hospital (NEW this season!)
Please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact e-mail and we’ll be in touch when we kick off the season.
We’ll be posting more details about this year’s schedule shortly so check in with us soon on facebook or back here on our website!
