Toronto's Green Roofs
Or is it rooves? Last September, I had the chance to explore a few of Toronto's best green roofs for Jamie Sarner's blog. You can read his article here. There are actually even more rooftop green spaces in the city but many are either private or didn't respond to my enquiries. A few that come to mind that we missed out on were Ryerson's rooftop farm, UofT's farm of the same kind, Mountain Equipment Co-Op, Covenant House, and the Rekai Centres. Not to mention all the private residences that employ roofs of their own. The ones I did visit were amazing as it was. I was thoroughly impressed by the thought and effort than went into each of them, especially Hugh Garner and Native Child & Family Services where technology met nature met aesthetic design met community.
I would love to continue to get up on the rooftop gardens of the city and add to this list! If you know of one and have access, I'd definitely shoot it for you... and me. Hit me up!
