The Village nourricier de Ste-Cécile-de-Masham is a project aimed at bringing together citizens and stakeholders around issues related to food security, nutrition, and gardening through the establishment of collective practices to develop mutual aid and break isolation. The year 2023 was pivotal for the Village nourricier de Ste-Cécile-de-Masham project. In 2021-2022, with the help of a grant for a startup project from the Community Development Support Fund (CISSS), an initial assessment of needs and resources was conducted (TDSCO 2022). A new financing agreement with the CISSS de l’Outaouais enabled the hiring of a project officer from April to October 2023

Here are some workshops that were conducted in 2023: 

  • Gardening workshops with École des Lacs ;
  • Seed exchange event Gardening day at the Collines Nursing Home with La Lanterne ;
  • Installation of collective gardening bins;
  • Ecological gardening training for citizens ;
  • Visit to the garden of a self-sufficient vegetable citizen ;
  • Efforts to include a collective garden in the plans for Masham's central park ;
  • Installation of a shared fridge at the youth center Le Mashado ;
  • Participation in consultations on the revitalization of Masham's village core ;
  • Community event "Masham mange!" .

The Nourishing Village will resume its activities shortly, so follow our Facebook page to stay updated!
