Community Listings
  • The 2011 edition of the Seedling sale is in full swing at Coop La Maison Verte – 5785 sherbrooke west in NDG! For the 6th consecutive year Co-op la Maison Verte and Ferme du Zephyr are teaming up to offer Montrealers a large variety of organically grown heritage tomato, vegetable and herb seedlings starting May 7th until mid-July. You can place orders until late May. By growing these rare, delicious plants, gardeners take part in preserving biodiversity by cultivating unusual varieties that are not offered by mainstream producers and are at risk of being lost completely. Ferme du Zephyr is a certified organic farm located in Senneville on the island of Montreal. In the summer the Ferme du Zephyr delivers organic baskets hosts a popular farmer’s market on Thursdays at the Coop.
