Toronto’s Green Roof Policy and Urban Food Production

Abstract:

This article highlights potential connections between Toronto’s Green Roof Policy and rooftop food production, suggesting both can be encouraged. It distinguishes between green roofs and rooftop gardening, discussing the potential benefits of each and linkages between the two. It also reviews the new Toronto Green Roof Bylaw, some of its features that could be challenging to future rooftop food production, and proposes changes that would more easily allow rooftop gardening to be integrated into the policy.
