Our plant care workshops

What are the workshops about?

Led by Greenhound volunteers and team members, we demonstrate how some widely used techniques which can be used to make plant 'babies', plant accessories, and optimal conditions like soil!

 

For plant propagations, we go through the elements of several techniques, such as stem cutting, division, and air layering, and discuss the merits for each approach for different species of plants. Attendees will be able to take home all the baby plants they propagated into small pots (or you wish, you can donate them and we'll grow them and share them with the community).

In some of our other sessions, we teach how to make plant accessories to support the growth of tropical house plants, such as sphagnum moss poles and lighting apparatus.

Who's helping us?

Many awesome volunteers! And hopefully you can come to make some plants with us too! This workshop series is made possible through the kind sponsorship support of Mountain Lake PBS. We are happy to continue our Latte Plant Care Workshops as part of our Education Series to the Greater Montreal area community with such great partners.

Which plants will be propagated?

Depending on the availability of plants from our supplier, we expect to have Hawaiian Golden pothos Epipremnum aureum, Monstera adansonii, Zamioculcas zamiifolia (ZZ), sansevieria, Tradescantia Nanouk, Scindapsus Exotica, and Ficus elastica Tineke.

We will be mindful of the current guidelines and requirements for your safety (https://www.quebec.ca/en/health/health-issues/a-z/2019-coronavirus/reopening-plan/festival-event). To make this event very safe, we will ensure that all participants are adequately distanced and surfaces are cleaned. All participants will be asked to bring and wear their face masks and wear them when not consuming food or beverages. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please inform us and your ticket(s) can be refunded.
