Make the Jardin des Sources—a magnificent green space—more accessible to an urban population

Volunteer camp project

Environmental project

Work with the Sainte-Thérèse youth centre to help maintain the Jardin des Sources and other city sites in order to valorize green spaces. This will allow the local population, especially the elderly living close to the park, to continue enjoying the spectacular views and various activities.

Hosting partner

Since 1993, Sainte-Thérèse citizens and Chantiers jeunesse groups have been working together to transform an old gravel quarry in the heart of the city into a new green space. The Jardin des Sources has become a rich and diverse natural environment due to the work of many volunteers. A lake was even named after Chantiers jeunesse to honour these groups!
