Harvest time for the SHDM community
This summer, several tenants of the SHDM had the pleasure of participating in greening, horticulture and urban agriculture projects.
Watch this short video to see our tenants, our very own horticulture team and Sentier Urbain and Ville en vert’s teams in action. Join the movement next summer and create a living environments that are dynamic, vibrant and green.
Fostering the spirit of good neighbourliness, increasing the sense of belonging and control over the living environment and creating a place for sharing knowledge are all objectives set by the SHDM through the implementation of these greening and urban agriculture projects in its rental properties. What’s more, they enable tenants to reduce their grocery bill with their crops.
To secure assistance for these mobilization projects, the SHDM mandated two organizations specialized in urban agriculture and community outreach, namely Ville en vert and Sentier Urbain. These organizations conducted a series of planting and gardening workshops and provided tenants with on-site support throughout the summer to build beautiful community gardens and vegetable gardens in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough and in the Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough.
At the same time, the SHDM own horticulture team continued its work with the tenant community of its Autonomie+, rental buildings, which are reserved for autonomous people aged 55 and over. Nearly ten urban vegetable gardens are now available to these tenants. “Developing the green thumbs of our tenants not only allows us to improve their living environment and contribute to their quality of life, but it also ensures the sustainability of horticultural development projects from year to year. It is certainly an added value for our tenants” explained Lorraine, horticulturist at the SHDM.
The SHDM thanks Sentier urbain, Ville en vert and the Société de développement d’habitation communautaire (SODHAC), external manager for the SHDM, for their professionalism in carrying out the mandates granted to them for this project.
