I've hosted several workshops with Maison Verte and have really appreciated their enthusiasm, creativity, and knowledge on food sustainability. I've learned a lot from working with Anam and Divya, and can't wait for more collaborations in the future! Highly recommend taking a workshop with Maison Verte :)

Andrea Bale - Sustainability Engagement Coordinator : University of Waterloo

Maison Verte makes it easy for anyone to understand the value of food and sustainability. I attended one of their first workshops on how to grow your own food at home. It was so easy to follow their tips and tricks! I love that MV is community-minded and committed to education. Their passion and energy are infectious. I highly recommend checking out what they have to offer!
