What happens with The Concordia Greenhouse in the summer?
During the month of May we focus on our annual Epic Seedling Sale, which takes over the entire Greenhouse. Thanks to everyone who came and supported us by purchasing our seedlings, house plants and more!
While the public Greenhouse space is closed the Greenhouse Collective and our Board of Directors work on cleaning, organization, outreach, plant care, review, planning and preparing programming for the upcoming semesters.
Additionally, we shift our focus to our summer project – City Farm School, an outdoor farm on the Loyola campus, which offers internships, open gardens and twice weekly farmer`s markets at two locations.
