Location

OCAD U Learning Zone, 113 McCaul, Level 1 (also accessible from 113 McCaul Street)

Come out to learn and get your hands dirty at our next meeting! Open to any and all in the OCAD community (student, faculty, staff, taking a year off), whether you're part of the grOCAD student group or not... yet ;)

 

To match the spookiest day of the year, we'll be propagating spider plants! Sadly, there's nothing all that scary about these air-purifying plants other than how easy they are to grow and how adaptable they are to various light conditions. We'll be trimming and potting baby plants as well as dividing adult plants that have grown so large their roots are choking our watering system.

 

We'll also take the opportunity to chat about grOCAD projects we are hoping to accomplish this year. At our last meeting, we talked about adding more greenery to the student lounge on the second floor of 100 McCaul and various workshops we could offer. Bring your ideas of how to move these projects forward and how you may want to be involved, or come simply for the plant love!
