Coming up at the Greenhouse!

We are now closed to the public until September!

We are making way for our annual Vert-ta-Ville seedling Sale on May 15th and 16th, 10am-7pm.
Also, as with every spring, we are shifting our focus to our City Farm School program.  You can find us all summer growing veggies, flowers, fruits trees, herbs, medicinal plants and even working with bee hives on the Loyola Campus!!  There will be lots going on this summer including weekly volunteer sessions, twice weekly farm stands, a workshop series, garden tours, beekeeping and more.  Stay tuned to the city farm school section of the newsletter this spring.
Also you will still be able to book half of the atrium lounge on weekdays for events until April 30th.

We made a feedback survey! Please take 2 minutes to fill it out and help us out!
