The Community Gardens of Quebec City (Quebec)

Community Gardens of Quebec City

Gardening on city rooftops, terraces and balconies is an original and creative way to reclaim unused areas of the city and transform them into productive green spaces that help contribute to urban ecology. It is with this intention that the Rooftop Garden Project has been exploring new ways to interact with urban man-made environment and the food cycle, for a greener city and healthier communities.

Our Gardens in Quebec City:

The Pénates Housing Cooperative Garden: The garden on the roof of the Penates housing cooperative in Quebec City is entirely taken care of by the residents of the cooperative. Since they have very little outdoor space on the ground, the garden allows the children of the coop to enjoy the sun while also discovering the pleasures of gardening.
