In the media, urban gardens at the farm

Agriculture, Press & Media

On Thursday, July 19th, the morning of Rue Fermier, CTV news and Métro Journal de Montréal attended the press conference that occurred on the second-floor terrace. The press conference inaugurated the accessible rooftop gardens, giving people with all levels of mobility access to the urban agriculture program. As many of you might already know, an elevator was built in March 2018 at the Roulant in order to create a more accessible space for all. A huge step in the right direction, but we are still a long way to being fully accessible to everyone. Santropol Roulant is working hard in ensuring that this dream becomes a reality in the near future.
