Telus Launch Green Rooftop with Community Garden by @carbon49

Located in Toronto’s financial district, the thirty-floor office building is surrounded by Union Station, Air Canada Centre, Maple Leaf Square, and the under-construction new RBC headquarters . On the fifth floor of this LEED Gold building is a beautiful outdoor space that overlooks the historic Fairmont Royal York Hotel and downtown core. It was in this space two years ago that Audrey Bayens, marketing manager responsible for the print production of national in-store merchandise, germinated the idea of a staff community organic vegetable garden. As National Chair of Telus Green Team Sameer Panjwani recalled, “Audrey thought we have this amazing space that people come and hang out, we can take advantage of it and grow stuff. In her personal life, Audrey is very passionate about sustainability.”
