Les Jardins Carya
Founded in 2011 by Ramzy Kassouf and Alex Flores, Les Jardins Carya is a diverse, certified- organic, vegetable farm, located in Senneville on the island of Montreal. They cultivate 3 acres of land, including two greenhouses and two caterpillar tunnels that extend the farming season from March to December. They take pride in providing food to the West Island community and take great care in sustainably nurturing the land to remain productive for generations to come.
Carya is co-led by Alex and Ramzy. Alex has a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Environmental Studies from McGill University and nearly ten years of farming experience. Ramzy brings a wealth of business project management experience, marketing skills and nearly ten years of hands-on farming, along with a successful career in the financial industry.
They are supported every year by a team of interns, apprentices and employees who in time wish to become farmers. They find it a pleasure to collaborate with the next generation of sustainable farming and are inspired by the future of food production that they represent.
