IGA – Sobeys

An initiative that takes root

For its third year of existence, Frais du toit (Fresh from the roof) launches a return to the land and its origins. In a three-episode documentary webseries — Les racines du toit (The roots of the roof) – market gardener Jean-Martin Fortier sets off in search of what lies behind this unique project. An excursion into the agricultural past of Ville Saint-Laurent, the discovery of the history of a family of market gardeners, all to better understand the evolution of a distinct neighbourhood and to rediscover ancestral species that have been forgotten.
