News and Feedback from the pilot project in Moussy-le-Neuf
The people in difficulty who took part in the project in 2019 and 2020 worked on an established orchard to learn pruning and grafting fruit trees with their trainer in horticulture. They also started the plantation and design of the new municipal organic orchard and gave helping hands to the market gardener at the end of the COVID crisis.
The municipality also equipped the market garderner with 1950 m2 of green-houses to support its activities and improve its cropping plans.
The COVID-19 crisis stopped the insertion activities during one month and a half. On the other hand, the market-garderner maintained its activities.
The good news of this terrible crisis is that allowed the inhabitants of the small community of Moussy-le-Neuf to realise how valuable it was to have a market-gardener in town.
Lately, the municipality made available to the insertion association Equalis and their employees in insertion process a nice little house where they will be able to settle down comfortably with all their materials.
The end of 2020 will be dedicated to the continuation of the fruit trees plantation, the drilling works, identification of a place to develop training in short circuit saling and to the construction of the municipal farm and processing facilities.
