The Man Who Planted Trees – tribute to Frédéric Back
In 2018, a strong collaborative relationship developed between Mosaïcultures and the City of Gatineau, and Gatineau residents got to witness the fruits of this partnership throughout the MSG 2018 event.
First, by choosing the new Mosaïculture Gatineau 2018 name, all parties ensured that Gatineau’s name would be an integral part of the overall marketing strategy rolled out in America, Europe and even Asia.
Moreover, dozens Outaouais horticulturalists got the chance to develop invaluable expertise that will help them for years to come as they maintain and landscape the many gardens of Canada’s National Capital Region.
Over 116 days, the event offered a program of 18 activities highlighting many themes Gatineau holds dear, with 18 municipal councillors acting in turn as patrons and eloquent spokespersons for each of them.
And what can be said about the one hundred volunteers who welcomed visitors with diligence, efficiency and warmth? These outstanding ambassadors made a huge impact on the visitor experience, judging by the comments received throughout the event.
Indeed, it was these volunteers, in conjunction with the Mosaïcultures internationales de Montréal organization, who decided to mobilize to help the 700 victims of the September 21 Gatineau tornadoes by setting up a fundraising campaign, which ran from September 24 to the closing of the event on October 15.
THE RESULTS WERE TANGIBLE AND IMPRESSIVE WITH NO LESS THAN $17,955 BEING RAISED DURING THIS CAMPAIGN AND DONATED TO THE RED CROSS TO HELP DISASTER VICTIMS.
Mosaiculture in Gatineau: a remarkable and noteworthy presence!
