Go green for Halloween at the Greenhouse

Join the Concordia Greenhouse team with pumpkin carving and zombie-mandrakes

The Concordia Greenhouse is planting some spooky seeds this week with a Jack O’ Lantern and Halloween decorations workshop tonight, and a zombie apocalypse party on All Hallows’ Eve. The best news is, both events are free.

The second installment of their bi-weekly “Art in the Atrium” workshops will take a festive air tonight from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Greenhouse Atrium.

This just might be the perfect opportunity to nudge you to get those last-minute Halloween decorations up, as the greenhouse opens its doors and invites all to bring pumpkins, apples, squash, or potatoes to carve into Jack O’ Lantern masterpieces.

If getting your hands all up in the guts of gourds isn’t your cup of tea, the “Art in the Atrium” team will have some classic Halloween decoration projects on tap too.

Then, on Halloween night, help fight off an infestation of mandrake-zombies that have sprouted up in the greenhouse’s soil.

Everyone knows the best way to tame brain-eating zombie-mandrakes is to overwhelm them with music, snacks, and dancing. The zombie-themed Halloween rooftop garden party will take place from 7 to 10 p.m., and costumes are expected.

DJ Swirlz will secure the space with dark rock and electric swing sounds, along with live ukulele and banjo acts to quell those pesky zombies’ bloodthirst.

The party will be hosted on the rooftop garden of the greenhouse at 1455 de Maisonneuve W. Blvd.
