Green Access Program
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 invite you to join us in building a community space where all ages and people can come together to share ideas and learn, through a hands-on experience, about the importance of healthy foods and the environment.
Volunteer at the garden:
- The garden season runs from late April through late October.
- No prior experience required
- Get your hands dirty working outdoors
- Meet other gardeners and work together as a group
- Learn about growing food, herbs, and flowers
Green roof visits:
- Book your group for a tour or a gardening activity in collaboration with the Green Access/Sustainable Living Program
- Request a slideshow of the Green Roof growing season to show your tour group
- Visiting groups include school classrooms and summer camps that participate in age appropriate gardening activities, tasting tours and more
For more information or to book a tour, email email@example.com.
Classes, workshops and training
Each year we offer a selection of training on topics related to environmental awareness, stewardship, healthy foods, and hands-on gardening.
When using the rooftop garden, we ask that you follow these guidelines (PDF).
