Its winter time in Montreal, but that doesn’t mean we need to loose the convenience of having local, fresh, organic food delivered to our doors.
We’d like to fill you in on a local company called Jardins Des Anges, serving the community with 100% organic fresh foods all year round.
Jardins Des Anges produce comes from a local ethical, organic farmers. Since we live in a cold country and cannot grow all of our fruits and vegetables throughout the year, during the colder winter months they team with local greenhouses and international partners to allow you access to various organic fruits and vegetables throughout the year.Read More
Les Bontes De la Vallee is an Organic Fruits and Vegetable Market in the heart of the Plateau. Open in the summer from June 8 up until Nov 10. If you haven’t yet visited this wonderful local market, you still have a few more weeks left before they close for winter season! I encourage you to take advantage of the next few weeks and head out to do your fruits & vegetable shopping outdoors in the fresh crisp cool Autumn air, since winter season is soon approaching and these experiences will be more scarce for some time.Read More
I discovered Le Sain Bol Restaurant by Chance on Sunday, heading for Brunch on Laurier. The original restaurant we intended to dine at was completely booked for brunch, so we walked up the street searching for a nice alternative to fill up our hungry stomachs. This charming little green place around the corner caught my eye and so we decided to walk in and take a closer look.
I’m convinced that some of the best things in life are found by chance and when we least expect it, and it was very much the case that day when I discovered Le Sain Bol. Can you imagine my internal excitement when I discovered it was not only organic but all local food! I was in heaven, it was a destined turn for the good!Read More

â€œIt is our responsibility and blessing to take care of the natural world of which we are a part.â€
I enrolled today in a Herbal course at the Herbal Academy of New England Another thing I can check off on my bucket list! I canâ€™t wait to start making new natural healing products from plants and share them with others + show people how to make them themselves as well.
For those of you who never had a chance to visit the beautiful Mosaic International Cultures Exhibit at the Botanical Gardenâ€™s, I wished to share with you some of my favourites from the show. I almost missed it myself, however luckily the Botanical Gardens had extended the exhibit for an extra week because of the nice weather in Montreal, and so very glad they did! Although it was raining the day I visited (hence the slightly dark imagery with some raindrops) it was that much more romantic being out in the nature, unsheltered by the rain. The pictures don’t do justice to the magnificence of these living works of art, they were every bit worth being caught in the rainfall.Read More
