La Maison d’Entraide has a garden plot in front of the house, in addition to three raised beds. Members are invited to participate in the gardening activity, which happens on a weekly basis during summer months. Members chose the plants they will cultivate, prepare the soil, and take on the maintenance of the garden all through the season. Once a month, a special workshop is offered by Pro-Vert Sud-Ouest, on a specific theme related to gardening (companion crops, pest control, composting, seed saving, etc.)
Harvested veggies and herbs are used in our cooking activities, or shared equally among participating members.
