What we do
We aspire to strengthen the urban agriculture movement at Concordia and in greater Montreal by growing local produce using ecological pracitces, providing experiential learning opportunities through volunteering, internships and jobs, and networking with other like-minded individuals and organizations.
Our tea atrium is a public space available for studying, plant appreciation, drinking our herbal teas and attending events including educational workshops and music nights. The space offers seating and tables, a beautiful plant collection and demonstrates systems like hydroponics, a balcony garden and a solar dehydrator.
Why we need your help!
Concordia’s greenhouse was built in 1966, facing South-West for optimal sun exposure and where it wouldn’t be blocked by shade from surrounding buildings. It’s composed of a series of separate glass compartments along a corridor, and includes specialized equipment for heat control, automatic watering and latticed blinds for sunlight control.
Over time this equipment has lost functionality, resulting in an unregulated climate. On hot days, the temperature can reach 50 degrees Celsius, resulting in crop loss and difficult working conditions.
Replacing the climate control system will provide optimal conditions for plant growth, research, and community use of our lounge.
The university has agreed to contribute half of the estimated $40,000 cost. We need your help to close the gap, and bring us one step closer to bringing new life to this valuable community resource.
Any amount is appreciated!
