Every summer, the organization Ancre de Jeune creates a work cooperative so that teenagers can grow and sell vegetables and seedlings.
These young people sell their products at the Les Saveurs d’été kiosk, at the Verdun farmers’ markets, from Semis Urbains to the Grand Potager and from the few gardens in Verdun.
Since 1991, Youth Ancher Coop aims to support school perseverance among young people. It offers personalized dropout prevention and re-entry support services, as well as a summer and winter program of educational day camps.
