Skygarden Program # skygardens

Anyone else think the city needs a balcony garden program? Developing a city-wide initiative or neighbourhood focused balcony garden program would be a relatively simple way to transform the experience of our towers both for tower residents as well as from street-level.

Benefits: beautiful, educational and therapeutic, food source, increased air quality, encourage people with no yards to explore and reconnect with the joy of gardening.

This could tie into the city compost program with soil deliveries to buildings and affordable planter boxes and starter seed packs.

This project could partner with condo boards, property management and residents´ associations to encourage building policies that include and promote balcony gardening. Bylaw could also be considered as a means for ensuring that building policies not prohibit balcony gardening (fostering the view that gardening is a human right!)
