Rooftop Garden Project, Montreal, Canada

“After five seasons of gardening and experimenting, the Rooftop Garden project team is happy to share the fruits of its labor with you. The Guide to Setting up Your Own Edible Rooftop Garden comes from our wish to see new gardens and partners take root in the fertile soil of Montreal but also in other parts of the world.

“The guide is divided into six chapters that cover the main factors to consider when developing a rooftop garden project: project definition, choice of site, setting up the garden, coordination of gardening activity, health choices and a detailed technical guide on rooftop container gardening.


Depending on your goals and your gardening experience, you may be more interested in and nourished by the first chapters than by the technical guide on container gardening and vice versa. In the annexes, you will find descriptions of our gardens and some additional information.

Our goal is to make planting these oases of edible nature in the city easier so that more and more people will start gardening on rooftops and discovering its benefits.”
