Join us by supporting local artists, learning about the healing abilities of plants, and meeting like-minded people from around the city. These events are made possible by the gracious support of our host venue Leaves House Cafe, and our media sponsor Mountain Lake PBS Television.

All are welcome and there is no admission fee. From tropical plants, flowers, crafts to outdoor meditation to children’s books - we plan to have things which may interest everyone.

Connection, knowledge-sharing, and fostering community wellness are just the beginning. Come meet our amazing community partners and learn about what community means to them.

What does Community mean to you?

Our September 18th to 19th edition featured Les Filles Plantees, Ivkaforest, MTL Creation Boutique, MTLA Studio, Soft Earth Forest Therapy, and desputeaux+aubin.

"Community is the people we lean on, where we can find support and encouragement." - Joelle Said and Patricia Chiniara (MTLAStudio)

Come join our community, the “village that supports its children” -Hélène Desputeaux (desputeaux+aubin).

"Community is sharing material and knowledge to help everybody improve. A strong sense of community can help foster a sense of love, support and encouragement in anything we wish to achieve!" - Zoe De Parscau and Louise Rivet (Les Filles Plantées)

"Community means for me the group of people working towards same goal, being supportive , caring and share ideas and talents , create together great benefit to others." - Iveta Vicenova (ivkaforest)

Sophie Monkman from Soft Earth Forest Therapy puts it perfectly: “Fundamentally, community means connection, support, and understanding. It means seeing, and being seen. It is reciprocal, and roots us in place.” We're looking forward to meeting you and sharing more about how to get involved.
