Patrice Fortier, founder of the company La société des plantes, will be with us on April 14, starting at 13:00, to assist with the launch of our Seed Lending Library, as part of our Earth Day activities.

Many of the varieties offered through our Seed Lending Library will come from La société des plantes. Among them: the Black Rock melon, Petit Canadien tobacco and Galina tomato.

During his workshop on April 14, Patrice Fortier will discuss (in French) plant harvesting and storage techniques, strategies to prevent varietal hybrids, and ways to maintain plant lineages.

A documentary: “Le semeur”

A 2014 documentary, “Le semeur”, starred Patrice Fortier. Get the most out of the upcoming workshop: the documentary can be viewed online or borrowed from the Reginald J. P. Dawson Library.

Make sure to register!

Free admission on April 14! Registration at the circulation desk or at 514 734-2967 only.
