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 (OIHSSC) in Gatineau: CHSLD Lionel-Émond (Hull sector), CHSLD Aylmer and CHSLD Ernest-Brisson (Gatineau sector), AND in one center of the Montréal East Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre (MEI IUHSSC) in Montréal: CHSLD Benjamin-Victor-Rousselot.
Special thanks to Mr. Claude Vallée, from the Institut de technologie agroalimentaire du Québec (ITA), St-Hyacinthe campus, who guided the four CHSLD in its choice of plants and in their maintenance.
And soon, our Foundation will be able to announce the production of a new model of adjustable support on wheels for those interior planters developed expressly to meet the needs of people with limited mobility.
Another dream of our Founder that is coming true!
...we note amongst the residents a certain curiosity, and perplexity: "A gardening bin for the interior?" "Wow good idea, the residents will love it!!", exclaim the employees...
"The cold earth feels good to the hands," said one lady. "Oh I love the purple plant!" said another....
THANK YOU to the organizations and the Managers responsible of those four CHSLD who supported this new project and who helped make this dream a reality:
Éric Gagnon, CHSLD Lionel-Émond
Kim Morin, CHSLD Aylmer
Marc-Antoine Dumont, CHSLD Ernest-Brisson
Sophie Bonin, CHSLD Pontiac
Joanie Doucet, CHSLD Benjamin-Victor-Rousselot
AND a special THANK YOU to Angela Nauleau-Javaudin, student at the Faculty of Medecine at the University of Montréal, who has been involved in this new project from the very beginning.
