Hello Greenhouse friends!
We are really grateful for incredible turnout and support at our Epic Seedling Sale last weekend. It was certainly the most positive response and largest crowd we have ever had at a plant sale. For the first time, we completely sold out of seedlings! The growing interest in urban agriculture in Montreal truly is an inspiration!
We want you to know that we heard your concerns and will do our best to improve conditions for the next seedling sale. The lines were unusually long and we really do appreciate your patience as we tried to work with the large crowd of plant enthusiasts!

We hope your seedlings are doing well!

Please get in touch at info@concordiagreenhouse.com if you have any questions or comments.

What`s going on at the Greenhouse

Hey Greenhouse friends!

As you may now, we are now closed for the summer, due to hot temperatures in the Greenhouse. We will re-open after the first week of September with the start of the fall school semester.

We are busy as bees preparing for our annual event, an Epic Seedling Sale, which is coming up this Friday May 15th and Saturday May 16th, 10am – 7pm (for as long as supplies last.) You can find plant lists for our plants as well as our guest vendors Neumark Designs here.

Next week, we shift our focus over to our City Farm School program, which involves a farm in the fields of the Loyola campus of Concordia, farming internships which are now under way, and a weekly farmers market starting in June.

We are also hiring for three positions! Check out the job descriptions here.

For inquires about the Concordia Greenhouse, you can email info@concordiagreenhouse.com.

Have a nice summer!
