Rooftop Garden Steward

About the program: 

Established in 2011, the Green Roof at AccessPoint on Danforth is a launching pad for activities that build skills around food and gardening. The program brings together community development, environmental education, and health. The rooftop garden also provides community members – many who live in high-rise buildings with no personal outdoors space – the opportunity to participate in gardening activities. 

Join us and enjoy the benefits of gardening, learn all about urban organic food productions, grow healthy food, meet new people, get your dose of Vitamin D, and earn volunteer hours!

  • weeding, watering, and compost maintenance
