In June 2013, we opened the gardens of the National Assembly of Quebec: a historic moment for Les Urbainculteurs and very symbolic for urban agriculture in Quebec and elsewhere. Nearly 130 species of plants grow there in the ground and Smart Pots, totaling nearly 2,000 ft2 culture. In addition to the organic vegetables, Le Parlementaire restaurant can enjoy many fruits, herbs and medicinal plants. Two hives have also taken place on the Assembly’s roof.
These gardens can be visited anytime during the season. Since 2014, a “Incredible Edible” section also allows citizens to pick some food… while leaving to the next! The garden was moved in 2016 for the renovation of the Parliament, but is still at the front, near vertical crops hiding the fence.
