Market gardening used as a vector for reintegration? This is the bet that "Les Jardins de Lucie" made nearly 20 years ago, by creating a professional integration project in the Lyon region (France), around the agricultural professions. Discover this project supported by Solidarity AccorHotels.
The objective for the garden: raise awareness to its employees their skills and know-how! They learn how to transfer their talents to other fields of activity.
For 3 years now, Solidarity AccorHotels has financially supported the development of the activities of “Les Jardins de Lucie”. This support enabled the association to create "La Fabrique", a workshop for processing canned organic vegetables, ready meals and vegetables under vacuum.
45 employees are trained for new jobs each year. “La Fabrique” thus absorbs the garden's surplus production, while generating a positive impact for the association and the employees it supports.
A strong mobilization of our Lyon employees
This project could not have benefited from the support of the Endowment Fund without the strong mobilization of local AccorHotels teams... From donations of equipment and furniture, to welcoming beneficiaries, and ordering organic vegetable and fruit baskets: our addresses were mobilized to support this initiative! The AccorHotels teams in Lyon provide support and visibility to the Jardins de Lucie, each in their own way!
