About Us

What is River Roots?

The Richmond River Roots Market Garden,  is an affiliate division of the Dr.  Kingston memorial health centre (located in L’Ardoise).  River Roots shares the Kingston’s focus on the well-being of Richmond County community members.The goals of River roots are: to increase access to affordable fresh produce, to share gardening and food knowledge and to provide opportunities to socialize with others.


Many of our activities occur in the River roots hub (formerly St. John the Baptist glebe house).  Activities and workshops take place in our commercial kitchen.  We also host social gatherings and lunches in the Cafe Rivière.  See our schedule of upcoming events.We look forward to the River Roots Hub and gardens becoming a place to gather, socialize and exchange ideas.  All profits are reinvested in the enterprise to further develop the project and promote food security.
