Coming up at the Greenhouse!!

Hey there Greenhouse enthusiasts!

Spring is here and our seedlings are growing in the sunshine! We will be closing our public atrium lounge and kitchen, as we do every April with the end of the school semester, to make way for our Verte-ta-Ville seedling growing program. Also, as with every spring, we are shifting our focus to our City Farm School program – an in-ground pesticide-free farm on the Loyola Campus! We will be out there all summer growing veggies, flowers, fruits trees, herbs, medicinal plants and even working with bee hives!! We even have a market stand right on campus selling our delicious produce. But don`t worry, if you want to get involved, we`ll be offering volunteers sessions weekly in the greenhouse, as well as twice weekly on the City Farm!
In the meantime, check out these awesome upcoming events!
