Our team was given the mandate to develop a master plan to integrate all forms of phytotechnology through the existing gardens.

After 10 years of implementation, a path of phytotechnology will be registered throughout the site.

Living plants are used to solve a variety of environmental problems, from purifying water, air and soil, controlling erosion and runoff, restoring degraded sites, capturing greenhouse gases and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. the heat and the velocity of the wind.

This project presenting Quebec expertise in the field is both a demonstration of different approaches to professionals and an educational site for visitors.
