“Les Jardins du Coeur” : two tanks offered for the vegetable gardens of the Coluche’s “Restos du Coeur”
While the “Restos du Coeur” charity is well known to everyone in France, the “Restos du Coeur” Gardens are not so well-known. However, these integration structures support more than 2,000 people every year, enjoying personalised socio-professional coaching in the context of market gardening activities.
At the end of April 2018, Labaronne-Citaf donated two water tanks to the “Restaurants du Cœur” located in the department of Isère ((South East France). The association, which was in the process of setting up vegetable gardens – with the help of apprentice volunteer horticulturists, had actually asked us to help water these spaces.
After a quick diagnosis (available surface area, water volume requirements, etc.), we offered them a 5 m3 flexible tank and a second one of 15 m3.
These two cisterns collect rainwater and thus, can supply the whole garden: salads, tomatoes, zucchinis… each vegetable has now found its place and is flourishing under our beautiful Rhone-Alpine sun!
