Construction of the 5th floor rooftop garden for Native Child and Family Services in downtown Toronto began late fall, 2009. The beautiful new interior of the buillding was designed by Levitt Goodman Architects. Working in collaboration with them, Scott Torrance Landscape Architect Inc. designed the roof garden. This unique new urban outdoor space, located at College and Yonge, includes a natural play space for young children, a circular fire pit with log round seating, a water element, Sacred Medicine plantings, Three Sisters gardens, indigenous plants and a sweat lodge. The garden is scheduled for completion in late spring 2010. Scott also worked with the architects on the design of the facility’s four story planted wall and pond inside the building. Stay tuned for more ‘in progress’ photos as the project proceeds.
