The Green Line
Created in 2004 to support the Pesticides use By-law,
the Green Line is a free consultation service that helps the borough's citizens
to find sustainable and ecologically friendly solutions to common gardening
problems. Complementary to the Eco-quartier Pierrefonds-Roxboro, the Green Line
also answers questions about ecological practices such as composting, grass
cycling, rain water collection and other environmental activities.
The Green Line offers a personal consultation service
that may also lead to a lawn or tree inspection by the inspector in horticulture
to make a visual diagnosis or to evaluate the conditions that encourage the
presence of pests (insects, weeds, diseases).
You can contact the Green Line by phone at 514 624-1215
or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
