Time Out says

Empty Bottle, Atlas Obscura and Sacred Bones Records pay tribute to the sought-after 1976 album Plantasia—a collection of synthesizer compositions by Mort Garson that was originally given away with any purchase made at the Mother Earth plant shop in Los Angeles. Over the years, Garson's discreet electronic music (which was intended to help plants grow) has gained a cult following, leading to a reissue of the LP in 2019.

Surrounded by the lush vegetation inside the Garfield Park Conservatory, artists like Ben Lamar Gay, Claire Rousay, Fetter, Forest Management and Sam Prekop will pay tribute to Plantasia by reimagining tracks from the album, leading up to headlining sets from New Age musician Green-House and harpist Mary Lattimore. Guests can explore the conservatory, soak up the music and take part in a pair of Plantasia listening sessions.
