Tierra Viva Gardens was started by Cinthya Leyva Mancilla in the spring of 2014 and was originally located on rented land in St-Jacques-le-Mineur. In the fall of 2018, we got the opportunity to purchase the 8 beautiful acres previously worked as Serres Joly in St-Augustin, Mirabel.
Cinthya is the owner and manager of Tierra Viva Gardens. She does not come from a farming background but has always been fascinated by nature and loves cooking. She has a bachelor's degree in Agriculture and Environmental Sciences and a master's degree in Plant Science from McGill University. It was an intership at the organic farm Croques-Saisons in Lingwick, Quebec in 2009 that sparked her passion for farming. For the first four years of Tierra Viva Gardens she worked the farm mainly alone but, as the farm grew in size and complexity, so did the team. At peak season, the team is now composed of about 8-9 workers that keep the farm running and bring you the delicious vegetables and fruits you love. We are hiring for the 2021 season! Apply now
We will be at the Valois Market from June 5th 2021 to October 30th 2021 every Saturday from 10am to 2pm.
