Something plant-astic is about to happen in Toronto. You can soon add a new member to your social bubble, but it's not what you would expect. You'll be able to chill in a social distance circle with a little potted plant friend in Trinity Bellwoods Park. Make your way to Toronto's plant pop-up happening this week.

You don't need to worry about staying two metres apart or speaking moistly when it comes to this hangout.

A bunch of potted plants are going to appear in Trinty Bellwoods' social distancing circles this week.

On Wednesday, July 29, you can share your circle with a plant and even adopt it afterwards for a small donation.

The event is hosted by CHIVE, a Toronto-based company that creates modern plant pots. 

All donations will be matched by CHIVE go towards CAMH’s COVID-19 Mental Health Resiliency & Coping Fund.

“Plants are a calming force in a changing world and positively impact mental health,” said Todd Newgren, Founder, CHIVE.

"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.”

The event begins at 8 a.m., and is not expected to last long.

Some of the plants that will be available for adoption include succulents, cacti, leafy palms, and more.

If you still haven't gotten your plant fill, you can head out to this tropical garden in Toronto for some Hawaiian vibes.

You can also enjoy brunch surrounded by blossoms and leaves at this dreamy greenhouse in Ontario.

The Fairmont Royal York's new terrace will transport you to a whimsical flower garden, and its the perfect place to sip a summer cocktail.

Have a social distanced hang out with your new plant friend in Toronto this week!
