The Pénates Housing Cooperative garden

The garden on the roof of the Penates housing cooperative in Quebec City is entirely taken care of by the residents of the cooperative. Since they have very little outdoor space on the ground, the garden allows the children of the coop to enjoy the sun while also discovering the pleasures of gardening. Situated on a wooden terrace structure placed on old tires, the growers are placed on reused palettes. Feeding the collective spirit, the garden is a place of discovery for old and young.
