Feeding the city: Discover the D-Trois-Pierres organization

Nourrir la ville: Découvrez l’organisme D-Trois-Pierres

D-Trois-Pierres is a non-profit organization which works in the field of socio-professional integration and the social economy. They operate the land of the Cap-Saint-Jacques ecological farm and the Bois-de-la-Roche agricultural park. Their main objective is to offer professional and personal training programs to people far from the labor market to help them find employment.

Two types of courses are available depending on the interests of participants, allowing them to acquire experience and new skills while being paid. For more information on eligibility criteria, visit their website .

It is thanks to program participants and knowledgeable employees that D-Trois-Pierres has produced dozens of varieties of certified organic vegetables using environmentally friendly agricultural practices since 1986. They also launched a project in 2015 called Cultivate l'Espoir in partnership with Regroupement Partage, which makes it possible to harvest between 150 and 200 tonnes of vegetables distributed to vulnerable families in Montreal neighborhoods with the highest poverty index.

D-Trois-Pierres is a magnificent place on the shores of Lac des Deux-Montagnes, accessible to all and offering many activities and services throughout the year. In spring, you can find the famous Sugar Shack of Cap Saint-Jacques for an authentic experience without leaving the island! The rest of the year, it's the perfect place for a picnic overlooking the lake or an impromptu stop during a cross-country ski hike. Take the opportunity to visit the general store and buy products processed on site or fresh vegetables during the harvest season.

It is also possible to rent one of the rooms of the Thomas-Brunet house, a completely renovated heritage residence, whether for a corporate event or a wedding. Perfect for enjoying the bucolic setting without leaving the city.
