The Atrium Events Team goes Thematic! Wednesday, January 23rd at 3:30h.
There is a vision for the atrium events team for this semester: events and activities around springtime wild edibles! This upcoming spring we hope to hit up our local sources of delicious and nutritious wild foods that found in and around Montreal, so events will center around harvesting, processing and Eating such delights. If this interests you we’re having our first meeting Wednesday, January 17th at 4pm to start planning for all of this greatness. Please contact Stefanie at concordiagreenhouseatrium@gmail.com if your interest has been peaked, and especially if you cannot make the meeting.
