This week, we go back to the roots of the company, and talk about us!

Who’s behind MicroHabitat?

.

Orlane and Alexandre, long-time friends, share the same passion for sustainable entrepreneurship and have the will to transform the urban landscape and the habits of citizens. The first steps of the company were taken alongside the beekeeping company Alvéole, while Alexandre created his first garden at Park restaurant. After studying in environmental science at McGill University, Alexandre Ferrari-Roy developed MicroHabitat’s agricultural production techniques and laid the foundations of the company. Orlane Panet, Bachelor of Management and Accounting from the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University, joined the team in the second year. With the desire to expand the scope of their actions, the two young entrepreneurs established a business model that would quickly appeal to the corporate and institutional sector.

Together, they create a turnkey offer of ecological urban agriculture through conceptualization, implementation, management and education. Their desire to improve living and working environments in the city is possible through the revitalization of unused spaces and the creation of gardens that nourish biodiversity.

MicroHabitat’s offer is accessible and applies to many sectors. For 5 years now, MicroHabitat’s clientele has been growing steadily. Now made up of businesses, health institutions as well as primary and secondary schools, the project generates a significant quantity of crops. Clients have the opportunity to consume their food or offer it to a local organization. Discover some of our projects here.
