Fall harvest is around the corner, which is why Argenteuil’s agriculture communautaire project is looking for members of the community willing to help out with harvesting every Wednesday from August 29 to October 3, 2018.

Social involvement in the project has been good so far. As of mid-August, 750 volunteer hours had been given by the population, a fact that has Argenteuil prefect Scoot Pearce quite pleased.

“The solidarity of every Argenteuil citizen is worthy of mention. Despite the oppressing heat we saw this summer, staff, partners and volunteers were there to help Argenteuil families in need.”

This solidarity project, along with the area’s food banks, aims at providing fresh produced to approximately 2,000 people in Argenteuil.

Those interested in participating in the harvest can sign up with the MRC d’Argenteuil by phone (1 450 562-2474, ext. 2361) or by email (champ@argenteuil.qc.ca). Anyone can participate. The project’s fields can be found near 262, Montée Robert, Brownsburg-Chatham.
