Greenhound Canada Foundation, in collaboration with Leaves House, will be hosting a Montreal pop-up plant sale on Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Leaves House's McGill College location.
One of the big things on everyone's mind as Montreal continues to navigate the second wave of the pandemic is the toll on people's mental health: limited interaction, spending extended periods indoors and overall increased anxiety.
Buying plants and greenery has long been considered a great way to maintain mental health and promote relaxation and calmness.
"All proceeds will go to community mental health initiatives," according to the event.
Customers will be able to purchase from over 100 plant items. You'll also get one free plant with the purchase of four.
This will also help celebrate the opening of the Greenhound Foundation fundraising store in Montreal.
Leaves House also offers a variety of plant-based merchandise, including food and clothing.
While you're there, be sure to get something at the café to make your shopping trip the ultimate me-day.
