Like restaurateurs, like merchants, we are affected by the labor shortagereveals Yves Vaillancourt, the exhibition’s chief horticulturist.
The ideal for him would be to have 100 workers.
We’re at around 70, 75. It is about to launch an appeal to goodwill.
If people want to try, even if it’s for two weeks, they contact us. It will be our pleasure to welcome them. And if they like it, they can continue with uscontinues Yves Vaillancourt.
Johanne MacKay, Deputy Director General of Mosaïcultures, assures us.
No need to be a seasoned horticulturist. Do you like planting, do you like gardening? Come help us!
The event promises to be grandiose, nothing to do with anything that has already been unveiled in the past, in Montreal, Gatineau or elsewhere in the world.
” Every time we do an exhibition, we want to improve and do more. The one we bring here is really going to be extraordinary. »
No less than 200 mosaicultures – never before have there been so many – will be presented, 80% of which will be for the first time.
The Earth Mother, the emblematic piece of the Mosaïcultures, will of course occupy a prominent place in the course and it will sport a unique look. Waterfalls will flow from her hair, which was not easy to climb.
It took us a lot of work to make it smooth. We are in the process of finalizing the waterproofing. We should do the water tests by the end of the week.informs Raymond Brouillard, the consultant and chief sculptor.
In order to mount the structures, he and his team use steel rods. This time, Raymond Brouillard needed to order a ton of them.
Bad surprise, since the pandemic, the cost of raw materials has experienced a serious blow.
Prices have risen substantially. We feel it.
Where to park your car?
Parking spaces at Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge are limited, but several options are available to those who come by car. The organizers have entered into an agreement with iA Financial Group, which has offices in the area.
During the opening hours of Mosaïcultures Québec 2022 (from 10 a.m. until dusk, 7 days a week), visitors can park there for free. iA Financial Group owns two buildings on Grande-Allée and a third on Thornhill Street.
We also have an agreement with Laval University, says Johanne MacKay. Several bus lines connect the university and the venue of the event.
The preparations for the Mosaïcultures are going well, and the most impatient can be reassured:
Almost everything is readysays Raymond Brouillard.
On the horticultural side, things are going well. We are in my timeadds Yves Vaillancourt.
No delays to fear, therefore.
It’s going to be beautiful, beautiful! repeats Johanne MacKay.
