The Roulant’s rooftop garden is a hidden gem in the Plateau that we try to share as much as possible with community members, visitors, and passersby. It is part intensive rooftop garden, part terrasse container garden. The walls are covered in murals and honey bees grace us with their buzzing.
The real beauty of the garden is that it is one of the three pillars of our buildings food cycle. A portion of the food grown on the roof is sent to the kitchen for our meal-on-wheels. Kitchen scraps go down to the basement to be composted by our worms and finished compost is then brought back to up to the rooftop garden. It’s by no means a closed loop but it helps reduce the distance our food travels and the amount of waste produced.
