MicroHabitat takes root on the roof of the Eaton Center

A new urban vegetable garden has taken place on the roof of the famous shopping center! This agricultural project, resulting from our collaboration with Ivanhoé Cambridge, contributes to the greening of the city center while supporting local communities.

The real estate company had already established a partnership with Dans La Rue, a non-profit organization helping young homeless people and those at risk. By joining forces with MicroHabitat, we were together able to contribute further to this partnership and multiply the impacts. Thanks to our program, all harvests are given to the Bunker, an emergency shelter set up by the community organization.

The vegetable garden is made up of 30 pots of fruits, vegetables and herbs, allowing the production of 100% ecological and local products. Our team of farmers takes care of the entire project, right up to the delivery of the crops. In order to reduce the environmental impact of projects, deliveries and trips are largely made by bicycle, good or bad weather!

In addition, this initiative, like all MicroHabitat projects, helps the Breakfast Club of Canada. For any installation of a MicroHabitat pot, a breakfast is given to the organization, helping a child in need. 

Together, let’s cultivate change!
