With its grand opening in 2004, this 10,000 sq.ft. of unused concrete was transformed into a beautiful rooftop garden for the Student Family Housing residents. This initiative has allowed the University to take an active role in the environment and the school community. Constructed at 30 Charles in 2003/2004, the garden is a wonderful space used by residents, family members, the Drop-In Centre children’s program and for community development events. This project not only set an environmental initiative but has provided a wonderful retreat to its residents for over 8 years.
