Our new raised indoor planters project

Our new project of raised indoor planters inside Healthcare Establishments is another way to bring the benefits of nature to those who don't have access to it.

About the project

Our new project of raised indoor planters is another way to bring the benefits of nature to those who don't have access to it.

Those raised indoor planters are in three Residential and Long-Term Care Centre (CHSLD) of the Outaouais Integrated Health and Social Services Centre (CISSSO) in Gatineau, Québec: CHSLD Lionel-Émond (Hull sector), CHSLD Aylmer and CHSLD Ernest-Brisson (Gatineau sector), . 

Special thanks to Mr. Claude Vallée, from the Institut de technologie agroalimentaire du Québec (ITA), St-Hyacinthe campus, who guided the three CHSLD in its choice of plants and in their maintenance.

And soon, our Foundation will be able to announce the production of our new model of adjustable support for those planters developed expressly to meet the needs of people with limited mobility.

Another dream of our Founder that is coming true!
