About 18 years ago was the first time I set foot in Cowansville. It was upon a lovely August evening, the now-defunct “Music en Vue” festival was in full swing and I was in love.
I came here to meet a charming young man from the area, who was staying with his parents while he was working for the festival that weekend.
Yet, I didn’t exactly land in the most bucolic area of the town; I was in the parking lot of the taxi stand, by the railway tracks! Perhaps love might have been a strong enough filter to prevent my eyes from seeing this decor!
Fifteen years, 3 children and many adventures later, my family and I decided to leave the city; We wanted to find more space, more silence, and for myself, I had a vegetable growing project on the table, waiting to get started.
After spending 4 seasons managing community gardens in Montreal, I put my plans for Le Champs de la Voisine down on paper, while following entrepreneurial classes.
Everything flowed with exceptional smoothness: the financing, the business plan, the partners, the support of the MRC and the CLD, the land… In less than 6 months, I was pushing my shovel into the ground for the first time.
