Gathering of Socially Distanced Plants Pops-Up At Trinity Bellwoods
July 29, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 amFree
On Wednesday, July 29, CHIVE, a Toronto-based company that designs unique, modern plant pots, is inviting the people of Toronto to sit back, and relax and expand their bubble – to a plant. The activation starts at 8 a.m. sharp and plants are not expected to last long. You heard that right – plants will pop-up in the social distancing circles at Trinity Bellwoods Park. Torontonians can sit beside a plant in this circle of socially distanced trust. Afterward, they can take it home with them in exchange for a small donation to CAMH’s COVID-19 Mental Health Resiliency & Coping Fund. CHIVE will match all donations made in support of the activation.
So why are they doing this? “Plants are a calming force in a changing world and positively impact mental health,” said Todd Newgren, Founder, CHIVE. “We are approaching COVID very cautiously. Our socially distanced plant pop-up is a great way to get our plants out into the wild while supporting a worthy cause – those most affected by social isolation. Many of our friends have been heavily affected by depression and anxiety during the pandemic, so we thought this was a great way to lift people’s spirits.”
