Biocité, Who are you, where are you?
BioCité is a young firm in Montreal, working for urban agriculture and edible urban landscape since march 20e12. Founded by Julien Yensen Martin, its vision is to contribute to a green city coming, sustainable and responsible, where each familycan grow locally its own food. How did you have the desire to create Biocité?
Before creating Biocité, I always been living in urban area, in Montreal but also in Dublin (Ireland) and Berlin (Germany). Even if I love my city, I often felt a lack of connexion with nature. During my travels in Europe, I discovered a passion for environnement and agriculture thanks to « WWOFING ». I lived and work in farms, I discovered traditions and the relationship that people in countryside, have with nature, bad weather, and so on. It opened my way...
What's coming out this year?
To discover Biodivercity around you, where would you take me to?
Montreal, what else ! :) To see initiatives in universities, citizens initiatives also!
Biocité has its own page on seedbomb, here
SO, now I just have to go to Montreal to see all this initiatives, sprouting out everywhere in the city...
