The project aims to develop the 6 hectare site coverage owned by the town of Gros Morne to transform it into a promotional space for agricultural and craft production, as well as one of eco-touristic potential for the north of Martinique. It brings together a great diversity of partners* around the project manager, the Caid Patrimoine work integration social company, with a strong support from the town and the Urban Area of North Martinique. The project will be eventually managed by a cooperative community-oriented company (SCIC).
