A logistical food hub
in the West Island

- Improve storage capacity for West Island farms, thus limiting losses while facilitating the increase of production volume
- Scale up peri-urban production and community-based agriculture
- Increase the area's capacity for distribution to community organizations in Montreal
Partners of the projects include D-Trois-Pierres, Regroupement Partages, and other West Island stakeholders.
