Volunteer Position – Green Access Rooftop Garden Steward
Established in 2011, the Green Access Program uses the Green Roof at AccessPoint on Danforth as 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 outdoor space – the opportunity to participate in gardening activities.
We are looking for community residents who are passionate about growing food in urban spaces and are interested in stewardship of our garden through the growing season!
This is an in-person position.
