Our raised indoor garden planters project

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

Those raised indoor garden planters are in Residential and Long-Term Care Centres (CHSLD):

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

And soon, our Foundation will be able to announce the production of a unique and innovative model of an adjustable cart/support on wheels for those raised indoor garden planters developed expressly to meet the needs of people with limited mobility.

Another of our Founder's dreams that she is presently working on with the help and expertise of a healthcare multidisciplinary team and a Montréal’s company.
