As of spring 2011, the Green Access Program is a new program based at the Access Point on Danforth, with the bigger vision of supporting broader Environmental initiatives.The Green Roof is used for community engagement and to promote environmental awareness and healthy eating. Programs are tailored to meet the needs and interests of participants and participating organizations/groups. Programs include garden drop-in, public events, educational workshops about food and the environment, hands-on gardening and volunteer training. As it gets established, the Green Roof will be a demonstration project to inspire other health service providers.
For more information, please contact Lara Mrosovsky, Green Access Community Animator at the Access Point on the Danforth, at 416-699-7920, ext. 405, or visit the Access Alliance website.
Have you visited a green roof or rooftop garden? Are there any near you? Should the government be forcing big corporations like Walmart or Home Depot (and other businesses with large warehouse stores) to install green roofs to help reduce their ecological footprint?
