Urban Planning Master's Thesis on rooftop greening

Before beginning to work full-time with the Rooftop Garden Project, I wrote my Master's thesis for a degree in Urban Planning on municipal strategies to encourage rooftop greening ("Making Rooftops Bloom: Strategies for encouraging rooftop greening in Montreal).

Located within, are examples of policies and programs related to food security, urban agriculture and rooftop greening from around the world but with a focus on North America. The purpose was to make recommendations to the City of Montreal for ways to increase rooftop greening.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at:

Collectively, we can work towards greening and breathing life into our cities.
