:::::THE PROJECT:::::

Les Jardins de la Résistance is a collective farming project located near Huntingdon (Qc), a one (1) hour drive from Montréal. As a collective, we are committed to working autonomously, non-hierarchically and in solidarity with each other to resist capitalism and imperialism. Our project aims to support communities in struggle for dignity and self-determination: including indigenous peoples, immigrant and non-status individuals and families, as well as members of rural communities who are being forced off the land by an economic system which favours large-scale agribusiness. Of particular importance to us is the recognition of the violence and racism that was and continues to be employed to steal land from indigenous people all over the world, including the land we are farming.

In practice, this project aims to foster a space in which to develop creativity, skills, knowledge and techniques towards an agriculture which is respectful of the earth. As well, it aims to build a new source of food for our communities.

All the vegetables are grown with care, using natural growing methods.
