Montreal, Quebec, Canada (Montreal Chapter)


Plant care and wellness workshops


In partnership with our community media sponsor Mountain Lake PBS, we are pleased to continue our Latte Plant Care Workshops as part of our Wellness & Education Series to the Greater Montreal area community.




In our plant care workshops, led by a Greenhound volunteer, we demonstrate how some widely used techniques which can be used to make plant 'babies' and how to make plant accessories to support the growth of tropical house plants. 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.


Our community partner in Montreal's downtown core, Leaves House Cafe, will be hosting our Latte Plant Care workshop series in August through November, 2021. During the workshop, attendees will be provided the opportunity to choose vegan-alternative drinks. Leaves House Cafe is offering attendees 15% off Leaves House Cafe's plants and merchandise during the session.


Our workshops will help us to develop healing garden projects and wellness programs across Canada.


Which plants will be propagated?

We plan to propagate Hawaiian Golden pothos Epipremnum aureum, Monstera adansonii, Zamioculcas zamiifolia (ZZ), sansevieria, Tradescantia Nanouk, Scindapsus Exotica, and Ficus elastica Tineke. Attendees of our workshops will be able to also take home the baby plants propagated into small pots.
