Everything Roof is a community rooftop garden and learning space on top of the new Centre for Social Innovation, Annex location. The creative structural elements of the garden will be designed and built by local artists using recycled and reclaimed materials. In collaboration with the Centre for Social Innovation, Sketch Working Arts for Street Involved and Homeless Youth and Skate4Cancer, The About Face Collective will create a unique, inspiring, visually exciting platform to promote urban farming, nutrition, green lifestyles and integrated community engagement.

We were recently granted $75,000 from Live Green Toronto toward our capital costs and need to raise the remaining funds by December 31st.
