LAVAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, May 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the arrival of spring, GoGo Quinoa is happy to announce it has donated $1,500 to Santropol Roulant based in Montreal and $2500 to Croquarium based in Sherbrooke. These two non-profit organizations are well known in Quebec for their commitment to the promotion, education and implementation of local, urban and organic agriculture projects.
In addition, the company has funded an initiative for its employees to grow herbs and vegetables this summer on the grounds adjacent to its offices. They hope to harvest the fresh produce and enjoy the fruits of their labour together.
“Urban food production is booming” said Martin Bilodeau, President and Founder of GoGo Quinoa. “Urban vegetable gardens, greenhouses on commercial rooftops, apiculture and henhouses in the city are all part of a collective desire to eat better and protect the environment. These are values to which we naturally adhere.”
