About the Concordia Greenhouse

The Concordia Greenhouse Project is a collectively run, consensus­based, non­profit organization. It uses the Henry H. Hall Building rooftop greenhouse as an all­organic space geared towards community, education and sustainable horticulture. The Greenhouse is a year­round green space that hosts workshops, projects and events raising awareness around food issues and alternatives to mainstream consumerism.

We aspire to strengthen the urban agriculture movement at Concordia University and in Montreal by growing local produce using ecological practices, providing experiential learning opportunities through volunteering, internships and jobs, and networking with other like­minded individuals and organizations.
