Who Are We?
We are a team of passionate people, who make every effort to provide you with a unique experience. Who will you run into in the garden? As soon as you arrive, we will greet you with a smile and be happy to give you all the information you need to enhance your visit. Are you hungry? No problem! Enjoy yourself at Café Flora. Sit on the magnificent terrace or attractive indoor area. Our Chef Paula Lentz and her attentive staff will surprise you with a menu filled with unique flavors and specialty desserts that will leave no one indifferent. In our garden, you may come across our attentive gardeners, who are very caring about the garden. Come and admire the fruit of their labour, which translates into beautiful flowers, trees, shrubs, edible plants, mosaics and more! Inside the garden you can also take the time to observe and chat with our two artists-in- residence who will showcase their art and share the secrets of their craft. Luc Cyr will offer you demonstrations of wood sculpture and Guylaine Dufour will reveal the techniques for creating stained glass.
As you go through the garden of medicinal and aromatic plants, stop at the herbalist building to meet Bérénice Gillet, our resident herbalist who will share secrets for the use of many unknown plants. At our herbalist building, you may come across other team members or invited speakers who will offer workshops every day in July and August, starting at 1:30 p.m. Education also plays an important role in the garden, so don’t be surprised if you come across our summer camp leaders or our education program manager, Francine Bérubé. Our team also works hard to offer you unique and rallying activities such as our La Sortie Branchée and la Grande Grouille. Come and have fun with us. No matter the time of your visit, I hope you will meet them all because they form an incredible team! Welcome to our Garden.
