Registration is now open for our spring workshop series in Montreal:
Will you know what to do when the apocalypse comes? You’re probably not about to quit your job to move into a cabin and braid your own hemp and wool into organic clothing, but there are easy skills we can learn to get back to the land while living in an apartment.
Through this series of discussions and hands-on workshops, we’ll learn how to grow and preserve our own food, make our own cleaning products, build a more inclusive community, and lessen our eco-footprint. By learning how we can become more ecologically and socially responsible, we can reconnect to each other and our environment, as well as simplify our lives.
Wondering what you'll be learning about? You can see a detailed course outline.
Our workshop on DIY Natural Cleaning Products was featured in Concordia's The Link newspaper.
We'll be offering this workshop again on December 2nd at P3 Permaculture. Check out the Facebook event for more info.

Through this 2 day workshop of discussions and hands-on activities, we'll learn the basic concepts of sustainability. We’ll learn how to grow and preserve our own food, build a more inclusive community, and lessen our eco-footprint.
On the first day, we’ll discuss what sustainability actually means, and the various ways you can incorporate socially, economically, and ecologically responsible choices into your daily life.
On the second day, we’ll dive into food issues. We’ll talk about eating in season and how you can preserve the harvest so that you can eat locally all year round.
This class is great for those who want to learn some fun, immediate changes they do to help the planet.
We are excited to present our first workshop on Food Justice at the Concordia Greenhouse.
Wednesday, October 21st, 5:30-7:00pm at the Concordia Greenhouse
Free - donation accepted.
What are some of the ethical questions that surround what we eat on a daily basis?
We’ll talk about some of the many ways that racism, sexism, classism, and accessibility shape the gap between who grows “healthy” food and who gets to eat it.
The discussion will also focus on how we can incorporate food justice into how we garden, eat, and advocate.
Our next workshop will be at the Concordia Greenhouse.
Preserving the Harvest
Wednesday, September 30th from 5:30-7pm at the Concordia Greenhouse.
Many folks think that living in Quebec makes it impossible to eat local food all year round. Actually, with a little planning, you can eat food grown around Montreal throughout the long winter. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of several ways to preserve food, including canning, freezing, drying, and fermentation.
We will be making dill pickles together. $10 for the workshop only, $15 includes your own jar of pickles!
The first 25 participants will be admitted.
