Rooftop Garden

It has been RHG’s dream to utilize the green roof on the Engineering building since 2011. The green roof was implemented in 2004 to reduce building temperature storm water run-offs. The Edible Rooftop Garden was developed by converting the existing green roof into an edible roof through the addition of compost, sheet mulch and various seedlings from Ryerson’s greenhouse. Currently, the Rooftop Garden flourishes with eggplants, hot peppers, squashes, basil, tomatoes and various types of lettuces.
