The new owners, Chantal Boucher and Yves Turgeon, acquired ownership from Lorie Nesbitt in April 2017. Ms. Nesbitt who operated the greenhouses (formerly known as “The McKenna Greenhouses”) for more than 35 years, agreed to mentor for a few years.
After leaving the federal public service in the fall of 2012, Chantal Boucher joined Ms. Nesbitt’s team in the spring of 2013, while completing an Horticultural and Green Space Management Certificate from Laval University.
Knowing Ms. Nesbitt had been thinking about retirement for some time, the project of acquisition of the greenhouses took form. Supported by her husband, Yves Turgeon, Chantal Boucher, has been operating the greenhouses since the 2017 season under the name Bourgeon Greenhouses, with a team of passionate employees and volunteers ready to spread the benefits of gardening and add colour and beauty to your environment.
