Blue Monday, the official saddest day of the year, may be over, but winter certainly isn't. With the holidays over, frigid temperatures, and no spring insight, you may be longing for an escape from the seasonal gloom. A new pop up happening in the city this week may be just what you need to bring a bit of sunshine back into your day. Union Station's winter garden tunnel will transport you to a leafy spring wonderland.
You don't need to hop on an airplane to see some greenery. You can head over to Union Station for a little bit of lushness during this snowy time.
Aphria Inc. has opened a Plant Positivity Winter Garden in Toronto's Union Station. The pop-up officially launched yesterday and will be here until January 24.
You can wander through a 30-foot tunnel filled with leafy green plants and twinkle lights that will help to transport you back to those summer months.
There's no better reason to be late for work than exploring this amazing tunnel.
The garden aims to bring some positivity and wellbeing to visitors during this gloomy time of year.
Signs posted throughout the tunnel encourage visitors to connect with the plants so you can go into your day feeling rejuvenated.
"...While most people recognize the positive role plants can play in supporting their active pursuit of wellness and improved quality of life, many don't know how to incorporate them into their daily lives, especially in the winter," Tamara Macgregor, Aphria Inc.'s Chief Corporate Affairs Officer said in a press release.
"Through our social impact platform Plant Positivity, Aphria is bridging the gap by providing education, increasing access to plants and driving meaningful impact in the communities we serve."
If you're looking for more garden-like escapes, head over to the Lobby Bar which boasts a fantastic plant-covered ceiling.
You can also take a trip to Allan Gardens Conservatory for more summer greenery.
