LITCHFIELD Aug. 7, 2018
Dozens of locals turned up to the Jardin Éducatif in Litchfield on Aug. 7 for a barbeque fundraiser with toppings fresh from the garden.
Director Martin Riopel explained that each year the group holds the event as a wrap-up of their summer program and to raise money for their end of the year trip to Montreal.
Riopel said that they had 23 youth in the seven-week program this year, turning up to the property next to Hwy. 148 just outside Campbell’s Bay.
The program is intended for at-risk youth in the region as a productive way to pass the summer months. Riopel said that during the winter months, he operates an alternative program for a similar demographic of youth.
