About the project Edit

The Garde Manger is a grocery store in Augan (in the Morbihan district of Brittany), created by a group of friends. But it is not just any grocery store— it is also a café-bar, postal relay station, and a venue for concerts, conferences, and creative workshops.


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Created and managed by a cooperative, the Garde Manger is a “base camp” for the organization of various activities.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

The goal of the cooperative to “revive this rural region by making it, once again, important to businesses in the surrounding area.” The Garde Manger gets its supplies from local producers (a list is provided on its website). This project also helps give life to the village with concerts, conference, creative workshops, etc. The cooperative motto: “Alone we go faster, together we go further.”

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

By sharing its experience with leaders of other projects, the Garde Manger team could contribute to the development of this type of “third place.”
