Denis Hervieux has been a market gardener in St-Rémi in Montérégie since 1966. “It doesn’t make me younger,” he says, full of lucidity. He mainly cultivates root vegetables – turnip, beetroot and turnip – garlic and beans on 150 acres of land. He works in conventional mode but claims to have reduced by 80% his use of synthetic products compared to the first years. Mr. Hervieux is a self-taught, energetic man who is not yet ready to stop producing his top-quality vegetables or selling them on La Place des producteurs.
