There is huge growth potential for apartment and condo dwellers in Toronto, and we’re not just talking about property values!
You don’t need a house and yard in order to have a garden.
Toronto has acres of untapped growing space on its balconies, and an opportunity for creating a peaceful and pleasurable living environment while at the same time improving the air we breathe.
Balcony gardens can help to improve urban life by:
- Beautifying our buildings
- Helping improve air quality
- Increasing our home-grown food supply
- Encouraging interactive communities and green initiatives
- Benefiting the physical and mental health of all city dwellers
We want to grow with you! Explore the site and all its links, contribute advice and experience, and help make Toronto a greener, even more beautiful city!
